I let my kids have a bonding time with their grandparents. I allow my kids to spend time with them where they listen to stories, play games and also listen to amazing facts. My kids also read out stories to their grandparents from books. Thus both grandparents and kids bond over and have a fun time.

A family that laughs together, stays together so let all the family members enjoy the family time and this will rub on to kids as well. they will also love to be with grandparents.
