Dag Nabbit! My Grandkids are at Summer Camp!

Skip the cookies! Here are 10 fun-filled ways to stay in touch with your grandkids while they are at summer camp.

Include a self-addressed stamped envelope. Seems pathetic, but make it easy for your grandchild to write back.

    FAIRFIELD, CT, June 23, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Do your grandkids spend the summer at sleep away camp? How can a grandparent stay in touch? Most camps ban computers and smart phones (Hallelujah!). Letters, postcards, and care packages are the preferred methods of communication! Phew! No more texting!

Need a few ideas on how to make your missives special? Try some of these and let us know how it works for you:

1. Create a rebus! Rebuses are when you use a picture to replace a word. For example, you might draw a picture of an eye, instead of using the letter I. Funny stuff even if you can't draw. Be sure to include the answer!
2. Send a funny postcard!
3. Short jokes and riddles are always appreciated! My blog, has lots of short, silly jokes such as," What do you call a rowdy sheep? Rambunctious!". Groan!
4. Send a crossword puzzle, word search, or word scramble. Just one in each letter!
5. Send a card game (Uno, Rummy) that your grandchild will be able to play with you when he or she gets home. Truly win/win!
6. Send a small care package (we can help you out with those!). Fill it with games, puzzles, origami papers, maybe a Cat's Cradle book or floss to make friendship bracelets.
7. Do remember that 99.9% of camps do not what any food sent to their camps,so skip the cookies!
8. Include a self-addressed stamped envelope. Seems pathetic, but make it easy for your grandchild to write back.
9. Send a disposable camera!
10. Send a sketchbook and colored pencils or a journal and pen!
