Gift Lab: A Grand Adventure

November 28, 2014

Daniella | A Grand Adventure | UncommonGoods

Product: A Grand Adventure Activity Set

Research:

Can this Grand Adventure Game be really fun for a 5 year old? I chose to do this activity with my grandaughter on a Saturday afternoon. We did many activities indoors and outdoors, which was a lot of fun. This gave us the opportunity to enjoy activities together and build beautiful joyful memories filled with smiles and laughter. This set of twenty activities will become a treasured keepsake for the both of us.

Hypothesis:

I went in hoping that this set will be a fun learning experience that my granddaughter Jailah would enjoy. I was happy to see  many learning activities provided in the deck. I was also looking for activities that could keep her entertained,  rather than buying a new toy knowing that she wouldn’t play with again.

Activities for Grandchildren

Experiment:

First we spread out the 20 activity cards that were designated for “Little G”–AKA Jailah. Then we took turns completing the activities that were provided for “Big G”–ME! We Started with one activity and continued moving on to the next.

Playing A Grand Adventure Grandparent/Grandchild Game

Conclusion:

Being a Mother and Grandmother you are always looking for a way to entertain your children. This Grand Adventure activity was filled with hours of fun and bonding. Her favorite activities were Buggin’ out, Thumbs up, and Have you heard the one about the funny Grandkid?. I enjoyed all the activies that were included in this game and would definitely recommend this as a gift for all grandparents to share the experience with their grandchildren.

    I used to be an avid cardmaker. I have all of the tools and gadgets. Haven’t dug into it for a couple years but this card making activity has inspired me! Love the cards!

      Thanks for checking out this post, Sarah! While card-making is certainly fun, this set isn’t really about making cards. It’s actually about, as Daniella put it, “making memories.” The cards already come with prompts for activities that grandchildren and grandparents can do together.

    Are there any sample little G cards? I have a 4 year old and I want to make sure it is something he would actually do/enjoy.

    Please clarify… are these done at the same time, together? My grand children (7) live far away. How can we make use of the activities?

    Good question, Georgia. These activities are meant for grandparents and grandchildren to complete together. If you’re looking for something your grandkids can do on their own, you may want to consider the My Grand Adventures Activity Journal instead.

    What age range would you suggest for the activities?

  • Reply Marisa January 4, 2016 at 7:57 pm

    Thanks for your question, Jessica. The recommended age range for this item is 4-10 (with a grandparent of any age!).
