We are so lucky to have family that lives in India. My 5 year old daughter was so excited about her grandparents’ arrival this summer. In order to accommodate them we had to move things around and change our house a bit due to our little one’s arrival. To help ease any anxieties about this change and prepare her, I encouraged my daughter to make something for her Grandparents. (Also Mommy needed a little extra time to get the house ready.) We talked about what would be a good way to make them feel loved we they arrived. She said she wanted to make a sign for them. So we figured out how many papers we needed and I gave her the materials and let her be creative. She copied the text from an index card with the word Welcome that we sounded out together.
Update! Look what her grandparents made for her upon our arrival from vacation.
She was so excited!
