Grandparents Day Card 1
Thank You for Helping me Grow
There’s a saying that children are like flowers in a garden. Yes they are, and grandparents are one of the first people who nourish and help them grow!
Step 1 Print pages 4 and 5 front-to-back. Fold it in half, showing the “Happy Grandparents Day” greeting on the outside. Using crayons or colored markers, color the letters and flowers. Do this on the inner page of the card too. You can also ask your preschooler write his name on it!
Step 2 Now let’s go to the fun part! Grab the paintbrush, acrylic paint, and your child’s hand. Color it with your preferred color for a flower. Then, stamp it on top of the pot to complete the flower pot!
Grandparents Day Card 2
If Grandparents Were Flowers, I’d Pick You
Awww, that’s just so sweet! Your child’s grandparents will absolutely love this one. This card is colored and has 4 versions. You will notice that the labels on the first page varies in each version. The first one is for both grandparents, the second one are specifically for grandmas, third version are for grandpas, and the last one is a customizable page and has a space to write your special nickname for your child’s grandparents. Like, if your kids call them Pops, Nana, Abuelo/Abuela, Gramps, you can write it there to make it more personal!
Step 1 Print your preferred version of this Grandparents Day Card, front-to-back. Fold it in half, keeping the colored half of the page on the outer part to serve as the card’s front cover.
Step 2 Select a color you want for the flowers. Then using a paintbrush, paint your child’s hand with acrylic paint. Stamp it on top of the stem and leaves on the front cover of the card.
Step 3 Choose another color for the flower. It could be the color of your grandparent’s favorite flower! Repeat the same steps on the other hand to complete the card. Now you have two lovely flowers on your Grandparents Day Card!

The card also features a trophy to award their grandparents for being number 1! This Grandparents Day Card has 3 versions - one particularly for grandpa, another one is for grandma, and the last version is a customizable version where you can write your special nickname for your kids’ grandparents to make them feel more special!
Step 1 Print your the version that you want front-to-back in a cardstock. Fold it in half, with the words “I Don’t Know All my Numbers” on the outer part as the card’s front cover.
Step 2 Here’s the exciting part (again)! Paint one of your child’s hand with yellow to match the trophy. Once you’re done, stamp it on top of the trophy! Now you’re ready to give your grannies an award!

What will your child learn from making the Grandparents Day Cards?
The Grandparents Day Cards are made of painted handprints, and this is a great sensory activity too! Your child may be a little ticklish but stimulating their senses help develop their brain, thus improving the ability to learn. While you guide them in creating these cards, you can also chime in teaching color recognition. On the process, you also insert language development as you communicate about the craft or about their grandparents! And most importantly, you help develop their emotional intelligence as they learn how to value, love, and appreciate people around them, like their grandparents! So, get a copy of the Print & Go Grandparents Day Cards Craft Pack now!
