GoodGrandma℠ ‘s Activity of the Month for June is taking the grandkids on a wagon ride around the block. Grandma Connie once gave Grandpa Bob a wagon as a gift. Now, you might think this is a weird childish present, but Connie saw it as a way for Grandpa to bond with the grandkids. It also gave Grandma a little break! The grandkids loved this activity and looked forward to those rides when they came to visit Grandma and Grandpa.
The kids loved the rides so much that each of my siblings and I bought wagons for our homes when Grandpa came to visit!
Grandma Connie made a special blanket for the wagon rides for when the weather was a little chilly. She even made a quilt for Grandpa with the neighborhood block on one side and a message on the back that says, “Grandpa pulling us in the wagon around the block when we were children did wonders for us as adults.” I have decided to start this tradition with my grandkids and encourage everyone else to give it a try!
