We can all agree: Grandparents are an absolute treasure! Growing up, my grandparents seemed kind of superhuman to me — they were always around to give advice, uphold traditions, and spoil me rotten.
One day, my grandfather showed me his high school yearbook and suddenly, I made more sense to myself. Grandparents are both the key to connecting to our past, as well as the cheat code to the future. That's why it's worth helping kids and their grandparents find conversation topics that both of them will be endlessly excited to talk about. (Pro tip: Record these conversations on a phone so you'll have them to remember!)
Here are 10 questions to help kids get to know the human superheroes we call grandparents:
What did you love as a kid, and do you still love it?
What did you want to be when you grew up, and why?
Tell me about the first time that you fell in love — what was it like?
What was the biggest technological change (or any other kind of change) that you’ve witnessed, and how did it change everyday life?
What’s one thing that you want to make sure that I know about you?
What’s the most important lesson that you’ve learned?
What’s the biggest challenge that you’ve had to overcome?
What would you consider to be your greatest success?
What brings you joy today?
How do you hope to be remembered?
