Still Time to Enter the Grandma Contest and a Contest for Moms!

I've been inviting you to share your favorite thing to do with your grandchildren in my new "grandma contest" . . . you still have two days to share if you would like to be in this contest! Next week I'll begin posting "entries" and open voting - of course any time we spend time with our grandchildren we, and they, are winners!

I realize many of you who read grandma's cookie jar are moms, not grandmas, so I thought it would be fun to have a contest for moms to see what their favorite things are to do with their children . . . just comment below to let me know what your favorite things are to do with your children and you will be entered in my "mom contest"! I'll take entries until July 15th and then everyone will be able to vote for the idea they like the best - of course I'll put together a prize package for the winner!

So please join in the fun and please comment below with your favorite thing to do with your children . . . do you have a game you love to play, a favorite recipe you love to prepare together, a special place you love to go together, do you plan special days each Summer for activities you do together . . . what do you do together? 


  1. I let my thirteen year old wear my old prom gowns and bridesmaid dresses for Oscar and Emmy night. We have red carpet fun and best of all, no Joan Rivers to talk about our fashion choices.

  2. My favorite thing to do is to hold GRANDMAS BOOT CAMP each summer. I have 13-15 children ages 2-11 for two weeks. I teach them bible stories, values through crafts, songs and fun times. It is great for them and a blessing for me! Christ is so good!!
    This year the kids learned B-I-
    B-L-E that the book for me. DOWN in MY HEART for songs. They learned about different sticks in the bible, like a shepherds staff, the wet water of Elisha and the staff turned snake making many crafts to help them learn. They prayed A LOT and even made "thank you" bags for the church including cherry pies with the cherries picked off the trees in the yard. Showing God does provide!
