Make your own “forget-me-not flower gifts” with the cut-out provided (Forget Me Not) reminding you of the gifts handed down to you by your grandparents and significant elders who have made a difference in your life. Special gifts, such as; love, patience, kindness, forgiveness, etc. Write on your flower, and hand the flower to your special person and say “thank you”!
Design a special prayer together just for you and your grandparent or elder to say together.
To support all Catholic parents/grandparents, who remain those primarily responsible for their children’s Christian formation, the team of ministers from the Archdiocese of Malta created a resource website with children’s games, videos, podcasts and crafts rich in catechetical content. The team also prepared a weekly “Sunday Liturgy” gospel reflection for families as well as encouraged all children and their family to come together to pray in their “Prayer corner.”
Ask your grandparent(s) to find a picture of him or her receiving one (or more) of the sacraments and make a frame for it.
Ask your grandparent(s) or special elder person in your life if they can help you make a Christmas or Easter traditional recipe that has always been special to them!
Plant seeds, flowers, a small tree, and watch how the seasons change the plant, talk about the seasons of life.
