The bond shared between grandparents and grandkids is so precious. Spending time playing board games, reading books, and watching movies is always special, but spending time connecting with a grandparent is a gift not just to a grandchild but the grandparent too. A sweet way to do that is to spend time asking questions about their lives as a child and share memories from the past with a grandparent interview.
My Grandparent Interview cards are a great way to facilitate this.
How can my child use Grandparent Interview Cards to bond with grandparents?
This printable pack holds 36 Interview Cards for grandparents.
Each card holds a question the grandparent can answer. This helps encourage conversation effortlessly and allows a child to take a step back in time and relive a time in Grandpa or Grandma’s lives.
A question like, “Do you have any regrets?” may open up to a conversation about things Grandpa or Grandma wishes they could have done, and possibly even make way for the family to coordinate to make a bucket-list wish become a reality for them.
Similarly, a question like, “Biggest lesson you learned as a child?” could make room for grandparents and older grandkids to discuss how that lesson could be valuable for the tween/teen today.
Can I write my own grandparent interview questions?
Yes! I would highly encourage your family to do this to make this beautiful activity more personalized and meaningful.
I’ve included a blank template that holds nine cards. You can print the sheet as many times as needed to add as many questions as you would like.
To make this a special memory, you could even have your child interview Grandpa and/or Grandma and film the whole interaction. This would make for some sweet memories.
What paper should I use to print these Grandparent Interview cards?
I would recommend using white card stock as it makes the cards more durable.
My child’s grandparents stay in another state. How can I do this activity with them?
What makes this activity unique is it can be done with grandkids and grandparents in person or virtually.
Jump onto Zoom or Face-time and have your child interview their grandparent, and still connect deeper through the interactions shared.
