A Grandparent's Story Craft is a great activity for the whole family. When you combine your drawing with a grandparent's story, you create a generational piece of artwork.

How to Make A Grandparent's Story Craft

What You'll Need:

  • 3 x 5-inch Index Cards
  • Construction Paper
  • Craft Glue
  • Markers or Colored Pencils
  • Hole Punch
  • Yarn
  • Blunt Scissors

Step One: Make a book about your grandparents. Think of a question and write it on an index card. Try to come up with 8 to 10 questions. You can ask questions such as "What was your favorite toy?" or "Where did you live when you were ten?"

Step Two: Have them write the answer on the card. If your grandparents live far away, mail the cards back and forth.

Step Three: Once you have all the cards, glue each one to the bottom half of a sheet of construction paper. Draw a picture above the card to illustrate your grandparent's answer.

Step Four: Decorate a separate sheet of construction paper for the front cover.

Step Five: To bind your book, set all the pages together and punch 4 holes along the left edge. Cut a piece of yarn, thread it through the holes, and tie it in a bow.
