    Being a member of a family is wonderful. Because your grandparents have lived a lot longer than you, they have many things to share: stories about what life was like when they were your age, or skills and talents you can learn from them such as cooking or fishing.

    Grandparents are often the best teachers about giving and receiving. Many grandparents love to give presents or special adventures and opportunities. Why not show them that you also like giving as much as receiving?

    For Grandparents Day, or any family dinner, make festive gift-box place card holders. For each one, take a handful of white Crayola® Model Magic® and color a small area with Crayola Washable Markers. To create a marbleized wrapping paper effect, mix the colored area partially into the white parts and stop midway. For a pastel color such as pink or light blue, knead until all the white Model Magic is colored. Shape the modeling compound into a box.
