Thrifty Tips

Sunday, September 7th is Grandparents Day!
“Grandparents are meant for kisses and hugs, For watching rainbows and catching bugs, For baking all of your favorite things, For books to read and songs to sing.”

Here are a few Frugal ideas & links to help you & your children to celebrate Grandparents Day!

Things to make:
*My Favorite idea: Place child's hand on cardstock or thin cardboard and trace carefully around it. Cut out this pattern. Have the child then place the pattern onto colored paper, trace around it at least eight or ten times, and carefully cut out handprint shapes. Once handprints are cut out, the child should arrange them in a circle (palms in, fingers out, hands overlapping slightly) and glue. Decorations may be added after the wreath dries.Finally, insert a picture of the child in the center of the wreath!
