Silly Bandz - Shaped Rubber Bands Make Fun Grandkid Gifts, Perfect For Long Distance Grandparenting!

Do you have grandchildren who live far away? Are you looking for ideas for grandparents to stay in touch and close to grandchildren when living far away? As a Sandwich Generation Granny Nanny to four sweet grandkids who live near me and a whole bunch more darlins' who live several states away, that's something I'm always working on.

Here's my newest plan for fun for grandkids from 5 years old up to early teens - Silly Bandz, also called Shaped Rubber Bands, which can be used to trade, play with, or wear as rubber band bracelets. They are the hot new craze that kids of all ages are loving!

They come in a wide variety of shapes, from animal shaped rubber bands to princess to cowboy to phrases and so many more. If you don't already know, check with your children or grandchildren for the grandkids' general interests. My granddaughters love princesses and my grand-cowpokes love cowboys. Then again, all the grandkids love animals and Toy Story. The Grand-tween loves all of these AND the phrases shaped rubber bands.

You can order one or more packages to be delivered to your grandkids, then call them to tell them all about the new craze that's sweeping the country - maybe the whole world! They may already know about it, but even if they don't, they'll be excited to hear about this fun surprise and you will once again prove that you're a very cool grandparent - and for affordable prices.

You do need to be aware that most of these are labeled for five years old and older. Also, some schools have banned them, as they've found them to be too distracting when the kids start trading them in the middle of class. I would just let your adult kids know about that possibility so they can check with the school before letting the kids take them to school. And one other warning - make sure they don't put too many on a wrist and that they aren't too tight - the same as with regular rubber bands. All of these are very simple and common cautions, easy to work around.

And speaking of these being for five years and older, if you have younger and older grandkids, stickers would be a good option for the littler ones.
