Some of my past articles with lists of ideas can be found here, here, and – one of my faves, how about Christmas in July or August, among many other posts. You could also see if any of these would work for you – even though they were originally from Christmas.
My Facebook page, SandwichINK for the Sandwich Generation, is another place I post fun ideas I spot through the week, like here, here, here, and this idea via AARP. While you are there, be sure to LIKE my page as well as the post.
Twitter is another useful resource and you might enjoy this tweet and this one for the LEGO lovin grandkids. By the by, you don't have to be "on Twitter" to read my tweets. Just go to twitter.com/SandwichINK to read them. Or you can scroll down the page here and look on the right for my latest tweets. BUT if you ARE on Twitter, I'd LOVE to follow you as well. Just leave me your Twitter name in the comments.
Finally, one of the BEST places for a myriad of fun ideas for all kinds of ages and interests is Pinterest. I've got a ton of goodies pinned to my boards, including Grandparent-Grandkid fun, Easy Crafts for seniors AND grandkids (including some holiday ideas), Holiday ideas for Sandwich Generation families, and some of my fave educational activities and ideas. Pinterest has so many goodies to find you could easily get lost there. But don't take too long – those grandkids will be here soon!
And YES, if you're on ANY of these, or ALL of these sites – or any other site, let us know so we can follow you there! And have a GRAND time with the grandkids this summer!
P.S. If you have time and there's a Target nearby – they have some fun craft and activity books in their $1 section, along with one of our favorite ball games – it's a round disc with velcro – and a ball that will stick to it when caught. It's cheap, it's easy, and it's FUN. We've enjoyed it for years. I just buy more when they break. At a $1, you can't beat that!
P.S. Thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate them very much and read each one. I also do my best to reply to them all but, as you can imagine, there are times (many times, lately :) ) when caregiving needs do not allow for that. Thank you for your patience and your sweet comments.
