Grandparents Day is observed on the first Sunday of September, immediately after Labor Day every year. It is that auspicious time of the year when the special relationship between grandchildren and their grandparents is recognized and celebrated. As such, this special occasion is marked with great fervor and gaiety in United States and various other parts of the world. Kids and people begin preparing for this day well in advance searching for special gifts to present their grandparents with. By doing so, they attempt to share their heartwarming and genuine feelings of love and affection with their dearest grandparents, who have stood by their side throughout their upbringing. While the elders are mature enough to surprise and delight their grandparents, little ones are often left behind in getting involved in the festivity. We present you some easy to make and wonderful crafts for preschool kids in the following lines.

The Perfect Tie
- Construction Paper (at least one big, long piece)
- Yarn or Twine
- Glue, Tape or Stapler
- Embellishments from around the house (like markers and stickers)
- Draw a large tie shape on construction paper and cut it out. You can also use a real tie as the template for sketching a perfectly shaped tie.
- Make sure that the knot part of the tie is a little larger than normal, since you have to fold the top to secure the twine.
- Use decorative paper, markers, stickers, or any other embellishments to decorate the tie.
- After you done with beautifying the tie, flip it over and place a piece of yarn or twine on the top of the knot part of the tie.
- Fold the top part over the yarn and glue, staple, or tape the end to secure firmly.
- Gift this perfect tie to your grandpa and see him wear around his neck proudly.
- Picture (4x6 inch size)
- 12 Popsicle Sticks
- Flip over the picture and glue the popsicle sticks on the back. The sticks should be in line with the top of the picture, leaving some sick hanging out at the bottom.
- Also, leave some room between each popsicle stick so that you can easily pass your scissors through the space to cut out each piece.
- Using scissors, cut between each stick, thereby separating the sticks.
- Your personalized stick puzzle is ready to be solved.
- Ask your grandkid to place the sticks together so that the puzzle pieces form a complete picture.
