Delaware Children's Museum Print
2020 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
This grant will help develop a specialized online curriculum to connect grandparents and grandchildren through remote activities in the week leading up to Grandparents Day and help create and deliver Youre Grand Activity Bags to encourage continued interactive activities.
On March 13, 2020, the Delaware Children's Museum closed its doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For Grandparents Day on September 13, the museum's grandparent members and the â€œGrand at Heartâ€ (those who serve in the role but aren't officially grandparents) were invited to pick up a â€œYouâ€™re Grandâ€ activity bag at the museum's drive-thru. An additional 100 bags were distributed at a local community center. The family pictured in the giant log appeared on the event's announcement. The other pictured family posed with the activity bag goodies (pictured bottom left).
