- Cook together, break eggs, get flour on your noses, then eat the finished product!
- Look at old photos together; reminisce: “when you were younger…”; “when I was younger….” Listen a lot!
- Venture out to places that interest the child, and where possible, you (if you have the luxury of not having to rush for time, as most parents today do, that in itself is a wonderful experience for a child.)
- Take grandchildren to places that broaden their experience, possibly the places that their parents haven’t taken them (i.e., Nature walks for city kids)
- Arrange to spend one-on-one time with each child. That will be what they remember most!
