where life, love and motherhood connect

GrandParents Day Craft Round Up

What better way to show the Nana’s & Papa’s in your life how much you care this Grandparents Day (Sunday, Sep 13) then by appealing to their … sentimental side?

I’ve scoured the web to find some truly unique crafts you can DIY that Grandparents are sure to treasure for years to come. I’ve focused on highly personal items that are all about family, memories, and special keepsakes. If you have an idea you’d like me to add, comment with a link or email your idea to [email protected]}
