grandparents day craft

Now that you’re smooth sailing through the back to school routine (Hah! We all wish!), and still recovering from the long Labor Day weekend, it’s time to think of the next craft holiday – Grandparent’s Day! Oh, you didn’t realize it was this weekend? Don’t you worry, these fingerprint magnets are the perfect personalized craft to show Grandma and Grandpa just how much you appreciate all that they do!


This project is extra fun because it allows your little ones to get messy! Also allows them to exercise their fine motor skills by drawing, painting, and cutting. It’s a great time to discuss what makes Grandma and Grandpa so special and why you are crafting for them or in memory of them.

Grandma and Grandpa will love seeing those tiny fingerprints every time they go to the fridge! Especially since they are on a magnet and not on the actual refrigerator, like they are at your house 😜


Take your craft gifting to the next level by making them this Painted Wood Wall Art or get mom and dad involved with Hand Lettered & Painted Rocks.
