    Anyone have any ideas for a special day when children have grandparents or other person come to spend about 1 1/2 hours with them. My room is PACKED and it is hard to move around or do a whole group activity. Last year we played some math games, but I want something different.

    We are having Grandparents Day tomorrow. I have a whole slew of activities that they can do with their Grandparent during the morning. I am not doing any whole group activities - these are all designed to be done with the Grandparent. I have word search, a mystery word game, a math game about the price of eggs now and then, 2 interview books (one for grandma and one for grandpa), a timeline of when things were invented (they have to put in order), a fall craft for them to work on with grandparents. I think there are a few more activities, but I am not at school right now to see it. The school is also having the kids plant bulbs, but that is not something that I had to individually plan.

    Our room is small and I fully expect it to be PACKED tomorrow!

    Wow...yours must be there longer than mine! Ours are only in my room for about an hour. I have two math games, Batty Bingo for fall, and a comparison booklet for them to fill out. I guess I'll run off a wordsearch too! Thanks for the idea!

    Yeah, ours is about 2 hours long. I am glad I prepared as much as I did. It all went well - thank goodness.
