National Grandparent’s Day

4 October 2023

According to the National Grandparents Day website, the aim of National Grandparents Day is:

To honour grandparents

  • To give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children’s children
  • To help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer

In the UK Grandparents’ Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of October each year.

What to do on Grandparents’ Day?

  • Honour the grandparents/grandchild relationships. If you can you should try to spend some time together. Below are 10 ideas of things you could do together:
  • Make something especially for your grandparents (for example a picture, a poem, a treat)
  • Get them to pass on knowledge (learn how to bake your favourite cake, learn how to cross-stitch, catch a fish or use a hammer)
  • Interview them (ask them all the questions you’d like answers to about their amazing lives!)
  • Have a sleepover and watch a film of their choice
  • Get them to play cards with you (grandparents are often full of fun ideas when it comes to card games)
  • Make a family tree with photos or hand-drawn images of family members
  • Switch roles! (be a grandparent for a day, let them relax and you do all the pampering they usually do)
  • Offer to do tasks around the house/garden
  • Make a card and list why you admire them
  • Get them to show you old photo albums and tell you all the stories behind the pictures

These are only a few ideas we came up with. You might want to do something completely different on Grandparents’ Day, something that’s special to you and your grandparents.
