Grandparents Day

Grandparents Day is on Sunday, here are some really cute, and free, activities for you to work on with your children, or grandchildren, to make the day a little extra special.

Grandparents’ Day Battleship Hunt from Miss B’s Basics on Teachers Pay Teachers
Grandparents Day
This is a play on the game of Battleship that can be used for Grandparents’ Day. The grandparents hide “grandchildren” on the grid and the grandchildren hid “grandparents” on the grid. The goal is to see who can find all of the people first!

Grandparent’s Day Activity Keepsake Handprint Poem from AtoZ Teacher Stuff
Grandparents Day
Use this poem along with the child’s handprints to give to grandparents.

Grandparent’s Day in Upper Elementary! from SSS Teaching
Grandparents Day
The grandparents got such a kick out of these and the students loved working on them together with the grandparents as well! It worked out to be a great way to connect and discuss about the past and the future.

Grandparent’s Day Rocked!!! from Kindergarten Squared
Grandparents DayGrandparents Day
We modeled how to play “Roll a Grandpa/Grandma” with our kiddos for morning work. We planned on playing with our g’parents if we had some extra time…which we did…so that turned out great! The kiddos gave their grandparents their coupon books and poems and then they played “Roll a Grandpa/Grandma”. It was so stinkin’ precious watching our grandparents pile up on the floor, at the tables, anywhere they could find—and play this game with their littles! I swear we were smiling from ear to ear watching them! And as you can see from the time frame above—we MAAAYBE went a WEE bit over the predetermined time allotment! I am telling you…they DIDN’T WANT TO LEAVE!!!

It really was a great day!

Grandparents Day Freebie from Just Reed on Teachers Pay Teachers

Star Wars Party on a Budget

This post may contain affiliate links which help support my family. Thank you for stopping by.

star wars party

I have always found the throwing birthday parties for the kidlets to be extremely stressful and expensive. We recently gave Koko a Star Wars party for his 11th birthday. He chose a Star Wars movie night.

Our party budgets, as a rule, are small. We don’t do elaborate parties. The only “big ticket” item at parties is the themed cake or cupcakes (whatever the birthday kidlet decides they prefer).

So for Koko’s 11th birthday decorations, I found some free online printables to use as his decorations. His Happy Birthday banner came from Libby Grove Designs and the food labels from Claire from Frugal to Free.

Koko and I sat and made our list of snacks to eat at during his party. The main idea was that it should all be easy to eat without having to lug plates or bowls around.

And so, for dinner, he decided that traditional South African Vetkoek and curried mince. These mini vetkoek were dubbed Hansburgers. Get it???

For the drinks, he chose the Sparletta Sparberry as the C3PO OIL and Sparletta Apple Rush for the Yoda Soda.

The other snacks that were a hit was the Simba Chips as Ewok Snacks and the Popcorn as the much anticipated Yoda.

Princess Leia Buns were Romany Creams, which was a brilliant stroke of luck.
Star Wars Party

Death Star Donuts were represented by chocolate covered donut ginger biscuits. These were blinking delicous!

I tried to make Lightsabers by dipping Pretzel Sticks into melted chocolate, but didn’t buy the correct chocolate *face palm*. At least the kids still ate them and pretended to sword fight with them.
Star wars party

Koko and I had also made Quick-make, no-bake brownies at his insistance, but didn’t have a label for those. These are divine and were polished off quickly. The red blobs on the serving dish is the chocolate I wanted to use for the lightsabers.

And last, but most definitely not least, are the gorgeous and absolutely delicious Wookie Cupcakes made by the very talented The Gourmet Sugar Fairy. These are exactly what Koko wanted.
star wars party

This party was everything Koko wanted. Movies, a handful of his closest friends, food and drinks. He had the best time. You don’t need to spend thousands on a party to make your child’s day special. It’s the people and the atmosphere that count the most.

Keep an eye out for our Shimmer and Shine Party on a budget coming next month!
