    Last year our second grade classroom had the following activity centers set up for parents/gransparents to share with their student. Only the second graders celebrated Grandparents Day, not the whole school.
    * Family tree - We had two styles, one an actual tree drawing with branches with lines on the branches explainig who's name to put in there, & a second one that was more like a flow chart of boxes & lines.

    *Hand TRacing - Grandparent/Parent traces their hand, then inside that outline, they trace the child's hand. The paper was titled, in nice typeface: Grandparent's Day [school's name][month, date, year]

    * Venn Diagram - Comparing what grandparents did as a kid & what the grandkids do now. Same title as above was printed on the paper.

    * Reading Center - The students put aside some of their favorite books from the classroom library to share with their family members.

    Hope these ideas help!
