Looking for fun activities for grandparents and their grandchildren that beat the late summer heat? How about roller skating?
As a member of the Baby Boomer generation, I grew up with roller skates and ice skates. I’m no whiz kid, but I am thrilled that I still rarely fall (unless I’m brought down by another skater 🙂 ), and can even skate backwards pretty good.
My granddaughter and I, along with two of her friends, had a delightful time at the roller skating rink recently. They had a blast! There were a couple of other grandparents skating with their young grandkids, but thanks to my 5th metatarsal fracture, I decided to just watch this time. And that was quite fun as well.
So even if you didn’t grow up skating on childrens roller skates (or have ended skating for this season of your life), it can still be quite enjoyable sitting and watching. Or follow my example and sit, watch, read, watch, compute with my handy dandy iPhone!
What summer activities for grandparents and their grandchildren have you been enjoying? We’d love to hear.
