Your grandfather bestowed so much love on you when you were a kid. Why not take some time off from your busy schedule and infuse joy in his life? It’s not all that difficult. Here are a few innovative ideas to make your grandfather happy.
 
1. Celebrate his birthday: With a little bit of ingenuity, you can plan a birthday celebration that your grandpa will remember for a long time. Be the first one to wish him happy birthday with his favorite type of beverage. If possible, take the day off to be with him. In the evening, plan a surprise party with family and his friends around. Have his favorite dishes on the menu. Make him a personalized birthday card. And most important, give him a gift that he will adore. You will make his day.

2. Fly a kite: He was the one who taught you to fly a kite. Relive those days. When the day is sunny and the wind is right, go over to your grandfather’s place. Select some mottled shades of paper and sit down and make a kite together and then fly it.
 
3. Go swimming: It’s a warm day and what can be more fun than going out with your grandfather for a swim. If some other family members are around, call them too. Take some beach balls and his favorite snacks and drinks along. Have a picnic on the beach. If possible, take along some of grandpa’s friends with you too, so that if the seniors tire out, they won’t be short of company.
 
4. Go shopping: Take your grandfather for some window-shopping. Buy him things he likes or pick up some of his favorite videos. Take a break when he tires. Sit with him under the shade of a tree in a park and hear him tell you stories of your childhood. Finish off the day with lunch at his favorite eatery.
 
5. Write letters regularly: There may be times when you are not able to visit due to a heavy workload. Do not fret. Make sure you write letters regularly to your grandfather. This may be the age of email, but a handwritten letter has its own charm.
 
These little outings and the time you spend together will build lasting memories with your grandfather.
