Last Minute Grandparent’s Day Gift Ideas!

Grandparent’s Day will be here soon!  If you’re looking for last minute Grandparent’s Day gift ideas, here are a few that are budget friendly and easy to make!  If you’ve already got Grandparent’s Day covered, these are great ideas for the holidays, too!

Grandparents LOVE to show off photos of their grandchildren and they also love gifts that are “from the heart.”  Kids love crafts with glue and craft sticks!  Your kids will have fun making their own craft stick photo frame and their grandparents will love it!

Find out how to make the frame here–> Craft stick photo frame tutorial  

This hand print photo apron is a bit more involved than some of these other items, so this might be one you want to save for the holidays instead!  I think these are so cute!  They didn’t do it in the picture, but I think I would add the grandkids names under their hand prints!

Today’s gift is a tissue paper flower bouquet!  My mother in law and daughter actually made this one when she was here visiting us last summer and had a blast doing it together!  Make a bouquet for the grandparents and give it to them or you can buy the materials and let it be a “bonding” activity instead!

Make a personalized handprint canvas bag!  I thought that this was the cutest idea when I saw it!  You can add each of the grandkid’s handprints and their names.

I posted this awhile back for Valentine’s Day, but it would be great for Grandparent’s Day, too!  Thanks to Tons of Fun for this simple yet very thoughtful gift idea!  If you wanted to dress it up a bit, you could add a frame, too!

Here’s another idea for a Grandparent’s Day card.  The handprint opens up and you place a cute saying and picture of your kiddo inside.

Grandparent’s Day Craft: Memory Book

Just a reminder. . . Grandparents Day is this coming Sunday.

I absolutely love this gift idea!  For holidays such as mother’s day, father’s day and grandparent’s day, I am all about giving meaningful keepsake type gifts that the recipient can enjoy for years to come.  This memory book is perfect.  Basically, you have your child interview his/her grandparent about the grandparent’s life and then the grandchild takes that information and creates a book with it.  Not only does the grandparent receive a book all about him made by his grandchildren, but the grandchildren get the opportunity to learn about the life of their grandparents.  This is a craft all about creating memories.  Thanks She Knows!

Here is what you need to make this memory book:

  • Tape recorder
  • Construction paper or card stock
  • Staples
  • Pen, markers, pencil, stickers, ribbon and other items to decorate the book
  • Old photographs of grandparents
