Spellbinders reminds us that Sunday, Sept. 9, is National Grandparents Day, a great time draw out stories from grandparents and elders.
It’s also a good day for remembering stories about your grandparents, using Spellbinders’ “Story Sparks:”
- Have you spoken to your children and grandchildren about your own grandparents? If not, use this month and these sparks to do so.
- When you were visiting, how did your grandmother generally spend her day? If she had free time, what activity did she like to do by herself? What activity did she like to do with you? Paint the scene by bringing in all five of the senses.
- What was your favorite place you ever went with your grandfather? Why did you do? How did it make you feel? Paint the scene by bringing in all five of the senses.
- When you were little, did any elders share tales with you? How did it make you feel? Where were you? Can you retell any of them?
