How It Works

Step 1: Pick a card, any card

With 50 ideas comprising of at home or out and about activities, grandparents can shuffle down the shortlist of activities and the grandkids can have the final pick.

Step 2: Grand Adventure time

Whether it's making playdough from scratch or visiting the library, enjoy spending quality time together and learn more about each other by asking the simple prompting questions from the diary each week.

Step 3: Save the fun times

Print off and stick in your photos and answer simple questions about your Grand Adventures to reflect on weeks, months and years later.

Step 4: Leave a legacy

Beyond space for recording memories and completing fun activities together, included in the Grand Adventures Diary is space for grandparents to write letters to their grandkids to reflect on in the years to come (and space for the family's favorite recipes too).

Your Questions Answered

Collapsible content

What's a Grand Adventure?

Grand Adventures come in all shapes and sizes and can be found in the simplest of activities, but to your grandkids, what makes these adventures grand… is YOU!

Who is the Grand Adventures Diary for?

The Grand Adventures Diary is for every grandparent wanting to be present and involved in their grandchildren’s lives and create memories that will last longer than a lifetime.
While the Grand Adventures Diary can be used with kids of all ages, the activities in the Diary and the ideas contained in the Grand Adventures Deck are geared towards kids aged 2-13 years old.

Why do I need one?

Grandparents already have such a special place in their grandkids’ hearts, but it can be easy just to fall into the category of “babysitter.” The Grand Adventures Diary will bring excitement and novelty into your relationship with your grandkids and make their time with you the highlight of their week! It will give you loads of ideas for simple activities to do together - helping you to beat the boredom and keep them entertained - all while teaching them new skills, creating lifelong memories, and deepening the bond between you. Who doesn’t want that!?

How does it work?

The Grand Adventures Diary comes with the Grand Adventures deck of activity cards, full of easy ideas for both indoor and outdoor activities to do with your grandkids. Choosing a card together prior to your Grand Adventure helps build excitement as your grandkids eagerly look forward to your time together. After your Grand Adventure, the good times aren’t left to fade but are saved forever through the stories, photos and drawings recorded in the diary. There are weekly “Get to know me” questions, to deepen your connection with your grandkids and to record details about your lives that may otherwise be forgotten with time. With space to include treasures like family recipes and letters to your grandchildren, the Grand Adventures Diary will become a family heirloom that is treasured for generations.

What are you waiting for!?

No one is getting any younger! ;) Start your Grand Adventures now and never stop. Invest intentionally in your grandchildren’s lives, record the memories and write your family legacy, one Grand Adventure at a time.

Creating memories that will last a lifetime!

We gifted my parents the Grandadventure Diary to help them create lasting memories with the kids so it’s documented for years to come. After recently losing my own grandparents and struggling to dig up photos and memories, we felt it was important for our kids to have something to look back on when they need it the most. These memories are powerful healers and it’s all in one convenient book now. Thank you! Xx

Amazing service and product

I bought a Dad diary for Father’s Day last year and my husband loved it so I bought a Grandparent version for my dad for Christmas! He was so quick to create some cards and pick a card including fishing! Such good quality. Postage at Christmas is often stressful with timings. Jeremy was in constant communication and even sent another diary express incase the first didn’t come on time and I just sent the other back. I 100% believe in this company, their care for their customers and their products.

Awesome present for nanny

My mum has my child every Friday and I bought this to use during his last year before school. The pack was great, including everything they will need and the novelty of the Polaroid camera is something they both love

Thank you, Sarah, so much for sharing your experience with us! We're glad that our Grand Adventures Diary can make those Fridays even more special for your child and your mum this year. We're so glad that the instant camera is a hit too! It definitely makes saving the memories easier and more fun! We hope this year is filled with joy for your family!
