How to Create Lasting Holiday Memories with Grandchildren

December 23, 2019

The gifts, food, and parties are fun… but the real, underlying happiness comes through the connections that are made with your children, grandchildren, and friends.

If you want to strengthen your bond with loved ones, then use this holiday season as a great opportunity to build memories together. Here are a few ideas that you can share with grandchildren:

  1. Focus on the Experience: Instead of keeping the holiday focus on gifts and toys, turn the conversation and activities to experiences that can be shared. Gift giving is fine, but your grandchildren will eventually grow out of the clothes and toys. On the other hand, quality time with your loved ones will build memories that last a lifetime.
  2. Old and New Traditions: What traditions would you like to carry through the generations? Whether you have your mother’s cookie recipe or you spend an evening as a family decorating the Christmas tree, make sure that you are deliberate about creating and maintaining traditions every year.
  3. Family Planning: You might have a bucket-list of activity ideas for the holiday season, but don’t overlook the importance of input from the grandchildren. Talk to them about the activities they want to plan. When the children are invested in the planning process, it will improve the overall experience on the day of the event.
  4. Reminisce on Past Memories: Not only are you creating new memories this year, but it can be fun to look through the old photos of previous holiday celebrations. Talk about the experiences that were enjoyed with the family in the past, helping to keep these memories strong through the years.
