Need a few intergenerational Father’s Day ideas? Plan an afternoon of special activities for the grandkids and their Grandpas that feature crafts, games, and lots of lasting memories. Here are just a few from notjustbingo to consider:
Set out several kits for the senior men to assemble with their grandkids, like padde wheel boats, birdhouses, or sailboats. If time permits, encourage the participants to try out their creations. For instance, set up a kiddie pool with water in the backyard for the kids to try out their boats.
Arrange to have the grandfathers provide one-on-one teachable moments to their grandkids. For instance, set up several game stations throughout your facility for them to teach their grandkids how to play different games like mancala and the triangle puzzle game. Then, when the grandchildren return in the future, they can play again in hopes of one day beating Grandpa at the game! Continue reading →

Father’s Day is right around the corner, so we wanted to show you a simple and inexpensive craft you can make to show your Dad how much you care. Nothing says I love you more than a handmade gift!! He is sure to love this Father’s Day Puzzle.
Something we love around here is when we get to use a certain product in a nontraditional way. For this particular craft, we used our Wooden Counting Cubes, which comes in a set of 100. You’ll only need 16 cubes per puzzle, so this is a great group activity since you’ll have enough for 6 puzzles with 1 set.
Step 2: Print out your favorite picture of you and your dad and cut it to the size of the square.
Step 3: Paint Modge Podge on to the top of the cubes, position picture accordingly and then paint on more Modge Podge. Make sure to get Modge Podge on all of the edges and corners so the paper is completely coated. Set aside to dry for about a day.
Step 4: Once the Modge Podge is completely dry, separate the cubes by cutting between each with your Xacto Knife. If your craft participants are youngsters, make sure an adult does this step.
