Grandparents Day is Sept. 9. If your kids’ grandparents live out of state, here is an idea for sending them a big hug through the mail! Roll out wrapping paper with the decorative side down on a hard surface. Have your child lay down with outstretched arms. Trace onto wrapping paper an outline of his/her body from the shoulders up. Cut outline out and let your child draw on a face with crayons. Fold up the paper “hug” and mail in a large envelope. Download a free printable “Special Delivery” label.
