You may already from time to time have the grandkids help with cooking. What about getting them more involved in the whole process. Teach them why you use certain spices instead of just having them dump the spice in the mix. You can plan a whole family meal together and do all the cooking yourselves (start small). Go through the whole process of planning, shopping, prepping, cooking and serving the meal. Oh, and don’t forget about the clean-up.

Scrapbooking
Both boys and girls can get into scrapbooking if the topic is of interest to them. How about creating a scrapbook of the nature hike you took together? Or a favorite movie, book or action hero? Scrapbooks are a combination of pictures, artwork, crafting and writing. Turn your special project into a one of a kind memento of time together with your grandkids.

Writing
Why not write a mystery or an adventure story together? The act of putting words on paper and then “publishing” your finished works will be a source of pride and entertainment for many years to come. The writing can be of a simple afternoon watching a movie or as elaborate as writing the family’s history. It can be a great way to share feelings that oftentimes are not shared.

Fishing
Both boys and girls enjoy spending time by a fishing hole. The leisurely pace of fishing leaves lots of time for thinking, talking, eating and generally hanging out together. It’s not so much about the fish that are or aren’t caught, but about being together. If you happen to catch something, be sure to clean and eat it together too. A nice little campfire and an old frying pan is the perfect way to do that.
