Over the course of about a week and a half, each of my children built a tree with their granddad.
First Ruthie went. They painted and decorated the tree (as well as played some scrabble on his iPad while the paint dried). When she brought her wooden tree home with her, the rest of the kids wanted to make one, too.
Gideon asked if he could make a tree next. They came up with a new plan and built another tree.
After making two designs, Granddaddy had to work harder to come up with original plans for the next tree. Isaiah’s tree has the added bonus of moving nicely with a hairdryer.
Elijah and Granddaddy decided to make a Christian tree with names of God on it.
I am thankful that the kids get to spend time with their grandparents. When Seth and I got married, none of our grandparents were still living, and both of us have grandparents who passed away before we were born.
Now our home has a forest of Christmas trees.
Do your children make projects with their grandparents?
