The important thing about these items and activities is that they all encourage cooperative play and conversation between kids and their grandparents. We don’t bring any electronic devices so that the kids can interact with grandma and grandpa in meaningful way. I also aim to only bring items that are easy to transport. I don’t want to be carrying large, bulky items back and forth. I know my parents are grateful to have some structured activities to do with the kids.
