Grandparent's day is September 9th and if your family is like mine we all live very far apart. So I had my children make "hugs" to send to them across the miles. Of course this also could be slipped into the mailbox if they live nearby.



  • washable paint
  • paper
  • scissors
  • ribbon the length of your child's arm span
  • tape


Print handprints out of paint onto paper.

When dry cut them out.

Attach the hands to the ends of the ribbon.

Mail to your grandparents with a note saying "Hugs coming your way!"

Have your say
