What grandparents loved about the Grandkid Investigator Experience:

Grandma of 3

"It really promotes an easy way to connect with your grandchildren in a very low-key way. It’s quite an exciting exchange with your grandchildren because grandparents may wonder how I can open a conversation with my grandchild.

Proud Grandfather of 3 

"Now they all know more about how their grandparents lived which they really didn't know before. These activities were both fun and informative."

Frequently Asked Questions 

Can you use this if the grandparents are long distance?

YES! In fact, inside the Grandkid Investigator Kit, there is a guide specifically for long distance grandparents! With three simple steps and a special letter to send to grandkids, grandparents can get their grandchildren excited about these missions.

What age is this intended for?

We know that grandparents are flattered when their grandchildren ask them questions so we believe that this kit will be great for grandkids that are ANY age. 

If we had to name an age, we'd say this is ideal for school-aged children and teenagers. Grandchildren in preschool would enjoy this for sure, but to complete challenges, adult involvement may be needed.
