3. Take pictures. Break out your camera. Taking pictures will give you and your grandchildren a memento to enjoy in between visits. You can also send the images to their parents right away in case they have any concerns about how things are going in their absence.
4. Pick a theme. Turn your visit into a party by giving it a theme. It can be as simple as a movie night with popcorn or as elaborate as an all-day celebration with meals, games, and decorations.
5. Be patient. Each child develops differently, so a successful visit will match their needs. Maybe they’ll be eager to spend the night or maybe you’ll need to practice by staying over at their house until they’re ready to come home with you.
Grandchildren will love sleepover visits when you make them feel welcome and secure. Enjoy your time together and create beautiful memories that you will treasure for the rest of your life.
