Autumn coloring pages and easy word search elderly parents and grandkids can enjoy

Seasons Change

Outside the weather keeps be-bopping around as we enjoy summer HOT alternating with autumn-like cool. Inside, our hearts seem to be settling early on delightful fall fun. Oh, we are still outside playing badminton and dodgeball when it’s hot. But the checkers and chess board is back on the table and the grandkids and I have been enjoying some fun games together. Great activities for grandchildren AND grandparents – both for the brains and for a fun break. Although, what a difference a year makes! Last year, I could beat my grandkids almost as often as they beat me. This year – I’ve played seven checkers games with two grandsons and I’ve…won…NONE! Yikes! Thank goodness I still stand a chance when we play chess together! At least….so far!!!!

Can you tell my grandchild’s got two of my pieces boxed in and the third is about to be! I only had one move and after that I didn’t last much longer!!!!

Scarecrow Smiles

One grandchild found our beloved and enormous scarecrow and they’ve all been having fun playing with him. Even their great-grandma loves that feller. Would you believe he’s been in our family for over 15 years! And he still puts a smile on all our faces AND manages to keep holding up in spite of all the grandkid “wrestling bouts” with him!

Scarecrow is as popular with the elderly parents as the grandkids in our Sandwch Generation family
