Sometimes Grandparents feel so alienated from their grand children. This could be as a result of physical distance, inability to visit or relationship breakdown within the grandchilds home.
One thing grandparents might like to do, is create a personalised book for the child. The book/books can be enjoyed from birth till forever, by your grandchild.
Here are some places to check out, and an example to get you started on your own story.
Check out this cool app that I found for grandparents.
Grandparents can write stories and include pictures, to be read to their grandkids in their absence. They can go something like this….
Jamie, say hello to Grandma and Grandpa (insert your own photo)
We live a long way away from where you live (insert picture of your house)
We will come to visit you as much as possible, and you can come visit us too.
When you come to visit, grandpa and I will take you to the beach (insert photo)
There is a zoo near us and we can go there to see the animals (insert photo)
Grandpa has a boat, and he can take you fishing (insert photo)
When you come to stay with us, you will also meet your cousins, aunty’s and uncle’s (insert photo)
………. And so on. I am sure you get the picture.
Good luck. It will be a great way to stay in your grandchilds life, when you can’t physically be there.
Search for ‘Story Creator’ in App Store. This is a free app for your iPad.
And I am sure there are many others.
Hope you have fun with is 🙂
