Hugs and Kisses
by E. Naccarato
What a delight it is to see,
My darling grandchildren run to me.
Their arms around my neck so tight,
Hugging me with all their might.
Their kisses are sometimes sloppy and wet,
But I don’t care, I’m not going to fret!
I’ll take their hugs and kisses anyway,
And cherish their love each and every day.
I would love for you to share a poem about your children or grandchildren.

Here’s a fun poem to recite while you’re gardening with your grandchildren.
It’s written by Moiselle Renstrom.
Little seeds lie fast asleep
In a row, in a row.
“Wake up, wake up,” calls the sun,
“Wake up now and grow.”
Little seeds wake one by one
In a row, in a row,
Then they stretch up toward the sun
And begin to grow.

Empty egg carton (heavy paper kind works the best)
Crayons, markers or paint
1. Cut the egg carton in half the long way.
2. Have your grandchild decorate with paint, markers or crayons.
3. Cut the pipe cleaner the length you want the antennae. Make 2 small holes on the head and from underneath stick the antennae in so they come out the top. Shape into antennae.
Learn this poem to recite as your grandchild plays with the caterpillar.
Crawling on the ground.
Did you know that someday
You’d be flying up and down.
Crawling on the ground
Did you know that someday
You’d be flying all around.

Grayish white in color
Hiding, ready to scare
Often floating in air
Scaring is what they like to do

My friend Barbara shared this fun idea with me.
Crayons or markers
Tongue depressor or popsicle stick
1. Trace your child’s hand on a piece of paper. Only do the fingers and have them spread out as if they are wings.
2. Cut out the shape and color.
3. Color the tongue depressor. If will be the head and body of the butterfly. Glue it onto the handprint.
4. Make the antennae using the pipe cleaner and glue on the head.
Your grandchild can hold the tongue depressor body and make it fly.
Learn this poem to say as the butterfly is flying around.
Butterfly, oh butterfly
Dancing across the sky.
Butterfly, oh butterfly.
First you are low then you are high.

Did you know there’s a website devoted to Peeps? CHECK IT OUT.
You’ll find holiday ideas, recipes and you can even join the Peeps Fan Club.
April is National Poetry Month so why not write a poem about Peeps with your grandchildren. Here’s one that me and my grandchildren wrote:
Purple, pink and yellow bunnies,
Little green chicks are so funny.
They’re squishy and chewy, so good to eat,
What a great Easter treat.
