Grand Spring 2021

Keep playing!


What better advice is there as we get older than to stay joyful, be silly, have fun and keep playing? And who benefits more from that advice, if you’re a grandparent, than your grandchildren?
Sure it’s wise to get a good night’s sleep, eat more leafy greens and walk at least 10,000 steps every day, but how much fun is that compared to, say, riding a rollercoaster, starting a water fight, or playing a practical joke. So throw away your lists—‘lose weight, hit the gym’—and instead: work hard and play even harder.
This issue of Grand features articles on topics ranging from 10 ways to be a fabulous grandparent, cooking with your grandkids, and creating and launching a podcast, to running your first 10k, the gift of giving, and developing digital literacy. There’s 7 Grand, a compilation of ideas and inspiration to help keep you in-the-know and connected to community, there’s a grandmother’s guide to bonding with grandsons, and there’s an article to remind you that age is just a number—you’re as young as you feel!
