Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 8 pages | Years: F - 6

Show grandparents love and appreciation on Grandparents Day with a printable fingerprint art project and letter.

Homemade Grandparents Day Gifts Are the Best!

This year on Grandparents Day, why not support your students in creating a handmade, heartfelt gift for their grandparents?

This Grandparents Day fingerprint poster and letter-writing activity is a fantastic way for your students to show their appreciation to their grandparents. 

Strong Roots Make Beautiful Leaves, and Kids Make Beautiful Art

This Grandparents Day craft activity begins with a simple yet elegant letter-writing template. Students will use this to write a heartfelt letter telling their grandparents how much they love them. You might like to support your students in generating ideas for their letters by having a class discussion about grandparents. Have students share their favourite things about their grandparents and how they have helped and supported them over the years. Chart the ideas generated and display the chart while the students work on their letters.

Students then use their very own fingerprints to create a family tree. Once completed, each student’s tree and letter can be mounted on large construction paper, decorated and gifted to their grandparents on Grandparents Day.
