AtticsRemember in the "old days" when houses used to have attics? I was fascinated with exploring my grandnother's attic in New Edinburgh, Ottawa. The attic was accessed by a pull-down set of steps…Continue

The Ladies have made excellent suggestions on what to do with your Grandkids. Might I add that a visit to the library might be less expensive than purchasing, but of course you could leave the books with the boys as a gift. As for a snack, try the health food store or section of a large grocery and maybe choose some snack bars that are really healthy, even sugar/gluten/nut free. They still can be yummy and the worker couldn't possibly object! I also remember how a large cardboard box with a cut out window could double as a TV or puppet show venue. And I still love a good coloring book. Good Luck!
I hope that it is appopriate to ask for this advice on 'The Coffee Shop'?
I am allowed once a month for 1 hour to visit my 2 Grandson's age's 4 and 2 1/2 years at a Worker supervised office in Toronto. I, on my own, have been doing this for 4 months now and although somewhat uncomfortable the visits have gone very well. But I would appreciate helpfull suggestions on 2 aspects of my visits which I enjoy and wish they were more frequent.
1) Any suggestions on what a 70 year old might do to try to interact, entertain, play etc with the 2 boy's or do I just continue to try to talk occassionally with them and essentilly let them play with the toys provided?
2) The last time I visited I brought them a package of 'Gummy Bears' candies suggested by the Shoppers Drugmart Manager. The boy's loved the candies and ate them readily. I heard later that the Worker considered the 'Gummy Bears' inappropriate for the boy's. When I was trying to bring them a special treat and would do nothing to harm them. Apart from bringing them fruit like grapes and strawberries what could I bring them as a treat?
Perhaps a silly question but being single, 70 year old and not having been around children for many, many years I thought I would ask the folks at Zoomers 'The Coffee Shop' for possible input.
