Tools to Connect Online


These apps offer some other worthwhile activities for grandparents and grandkids: and Ancestry websites are a great way for grandparents and older grandchildren to explore their family’s history together.

Keepy. Share artwork, school projects and photos grandparents love to put on their fridge but might not have room for.

Hoot. Draw, play, or read together in real time.

Redeo. Read together while your young grandchild turns the pages.

ooVoo and Voxer. These apps allow you to send photos and videos or to talk and text—all in real time.

Wheel of Fortune. This app version of the popular TV show allows grandparents and grandchildren to spin the wheel together, no matter the distance.
