How To Bond With Grandparents From Far Away 💜 Whether grandparents and grandchildren are separated by miles, or they’re unable to see each other in person due to COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines, here are some ways to help them connect:
🐱 Use FaceTime, Skype, or similar technology to communicate on a regular basis.
🐶 Take video chats outside so they can go for a walk “together” — they can show each other their surroundings and anything interesting they see.
🐹 Bring back the pen pal relationship. Encourage your child to write notes or draw pictures to send to their grandparents — and vice versa.
🐼 Ask grandparents to record songs, lullabies, and bedtime stories to be shared again and again.
🐷 Establish special traditions like virtual Friday night ice cream dates or Saturday morning breakfasts.
