Autumn Wreaths Activities Are Easy Crafts for Seniors, Grandparents and Grandchildren

by Kaye Swain

My grandkids and I got really adventurous and decided to make our own Thanksgiving wreaths this year for fun holiday activities for grandparents and grandchildren.  And, of course, I had to capture all the fun family memories with my easy to use digital camera! :)   This being the week of Thanksgiving, it seemed like the perfect time to share them with y'all. :)

Here are our supplies:

Making Autumn - Fall Thanksgiving wreaths are fun activities for the Sandwich Generation grandparents and their grandchildren full of sweet family memories

 

Starting in – (My personal philosophy – busy grandkids hands are happy grandkids hands!  :) ) 

This granny nanny is a firm believer that busy grandkids hands are happy grandkids hands

 

Autumn Wreaths completed:

Each grandchild showed a different creative flavor and all of the grandchildren had a delightful time - as did this very happy granny nanny - enjoying a fun day full of sweet family memories

 

I shared with my grandkids my family memories of their great grandfather making Thanksgiving wreaths for us a few years ago - these are definitely easy crafts for seniors as well as grandchildren

 

Sweet fall wreaths - sweet family memories - sweet Sandwich Generation activities for granny nannies and grandkids

I had as much fun taking their fall photos with my easy to use Canon Powershot digital camera as I did watching them create these cute autumn wreaths! And they enjoyed hearing me tell about their great-grandfather and the year HE made fall wreaths for us! (These fun fall wreaths are easy crafts for seniors as well as the grandkids!) Aren't fall activities for grandparents and grandchildren fun and full of sweet family memories! :)

P.S. Monday after Thanksgiving is a GREAT time to buy your own easy to use digital camera – in the stores or online at great stores like Walmart with easy return policies if there any problems. That's a wonderful time saver for all of us in the Sandwich Generation busy caring for elderly parents and grandkids!
