What was grandpa’s work?

Explaining careers can be hard. But dress-up helps!

We told out children that their grandfather (now deceased) was a professor of architecture. That made about as much sense as eating vegetables…

So we added some funny clothes and a pointer …

The details are less important, but the point is: our children got to pretend to be a professor like their grandfather was. Most of the activity was just fun-fun-fun, with just a little pinch of real ancestry. Now they remember who he was, what he did and a little bit of what his personality was like.

Inter-generational stories like this can have lasting impacts. In light of their grandfather’s life, they may start to view their own lives differently. Turning Little Hearts really works! And it’s fun!
