My sweeties and I will be celebrating Grandparents Day tomorrow with a fun brunch, shopping with the Grands at the Book Fair, and dismissal at noon to go home and play with Grandma and Grandpa. 🙂 My kiddies are beyond excited. Today they traced their own hands and cut out their hand prints to make these fun cards! I wrote a little poem to attach to their hand prints, and we added a heart and a “kiss.”
We also made these ADORABLE Grandparents using my craft template. Students responded with three things they love about their Grandparents. Wallpaper books make the perfect “clothing” for these types of projects. I always stop by Sherwin Williams and ask for any books they’re planning to throw out!
This template is available in my TPT shop. It includes this Grandparents Day writing template PLUS a template for a 100th Day of School Response (“When I’m 100”). You could use for either holiday–or for both! It’s only $3.50 and includes all the pattern pieces and instructions as well as the writing prompts.
You can grab the hand print poem and this “list it” writing prompt at TPT as a freebie! Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing your awesome Grandparents Day activities and introducing new concepts. I hope to use them this school year as well.
Awww, I’m so thankful you can use them!
What a great post! I spend a couple of minutes on studying, and I’m so excited by the information I obtained.
It is actually hard to find something valuable on this particular subject.
But this author seems to be a genuine professional since there’s a
unique style in his writings. I’m going to sign up for his new
books, not to skip anything. This post worths its own reading.
