Ah, Grandma and Grandpa’s house. The place of basically no rules, tons of junk food and being treated like an absolute King or Queen for the night. There’s nothing quite like it, and setting your child up for fond memories at their grandparents house will give them a lifetime of heartwarming stories. It’s hard to say who enjoys the time more - the kids, the grandparents or the parents who get a night off! There are so many benefits for children spending quality time with their grandparents. Children are shown to have a stronger family bond throughout their life, make family a high priority, learn unconditional love, are able to share family history, have better social behaviors and even have less of a chance of suffering from depression. With all these awesome statistics, on top of parents getting to have some precious alone time, why wouldn’t you want to encourage that?
Get Ready for Sleepovers at Grandma & Grandpa’s House!
On top of having their favorite snacks (especially the ones they’re not usually allowed to have at Mom & Dad’s house), some games, a couple of good books and maybe even a movie to curl up with, it’s important to make sure they have their own setup to make them feel comfortable while spending the night. This can be especially true if your little one doesn’t see Grandma and Grandpa too often, such as if you have to travel far to see them. Sometimes kids get shy around people they don’t see too often, even if it’s their own Grandparents! Breaking the ice with their own stuff is always a sure way to their heart. As a kid, we always loved having our own space with our own things. That’s why it’s such a fun idea to get some stuff for your kids to keep at Grandma and Grandpa’s for sleepovers, and add an extra layer or something to look forward to. If you’re a grandparent looking to make your grandkids stay more comfortable, we’ve got everything they will need for a comfy night with you. You can forward on to family for gift ideas, or simply sweep it all up yourself! Happy shopping!
