Enjoy a little together time on grandparents day

Get ready for grandparents day.

Grandparents’ Day is coming up this Sunday, 29 October.

The day is a chance to honour the special relationship between grandparents and little ones, it’s the perfect opportunity to get together and share some quality time.

If you’ve yet to plan a Grandparents’ Day get-together, fear not! There is plenty of time to organise an unforgettable day of fun.

This ‘book bingo’ game guarantees good times, perfect for creating special memories that you (and your grandchildren) will cherish forever. Plus, these stories can act as great conversation starters, sparking deeper chats with your grandchildren as you explore new themes and meet new characters together.

How to host a Grandparents’ Day book bingo party

1. Invite the family around

First things first, you’ll need to gather the family to bring everyone together for a special celebration. If you have the time, handmade cards add a nice touch – but a simple text or email will also do perfectly!

2. Prepare some light snacks

No party is complete without a morning tea! Either make a few small nibbles or grab a few pre-made treats to enjoy. When catering for kids, you can’t go wrong with an assorted pack of bikkies. Easy and delicious!

3. Play ‘book bingo’

Print this bingo card via this download link, or simply look at the image online (below). Work your way through the books together, taking time to chat about each one. You can play the bingo however you’d like: three-in-a-row, diagonally or total blackout!

If you have multiple grandchildren, you can turn the game into a friendly competition to see which little one can read the most books (with the help of Grandma and Grandpa – of course).

At the end of the game, celebrate your success.

Have each player share a few words about which book was their favourite – and explain why.
