Preschool Storytime Ideas
Grandparents Day, celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day, can be fun for preschoolers. If their grandparents live far away, they can email them or make them a card to be mailed to them. If the grandparents live close enough to visit, the kids can make paper flowers or other gifts. For more ideas check out: www.grandparents-day.com/activities.htm
