Retailers can promote an important holiday this weekend, as National Grandparents Day is celebrated annually on the first Sunday after Labor Day.

In recognition of the holiday, which falls this year on Sept. 13, Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies, a national early childhood education franchise with three decades of experience, is sharing ideas to help make National Grandparents Day a meaningful time for families. It is important for parents to help their children understand the special role of grandparents in the family; a great way can be through fun, light-hearted activities that show gratitude and appreciation.

One promotional idea is “Bake a Treat.” Grandparents are grateful for the time they get to spend with their grandchildren. Baking yummy treats are a fun project everyone can be a part of. Hold a baking day for your child and parents. Kids can practice planning, preparing and serving their goodies while spending quality time with family.
