Amaze your grandkids this Thanksgiving, plus the GRAND Social link party

It's Thanksgiving week. And though our plates are overflowing with things to do, what grandma or grandpa worth their whiskers isn't interested in adding more knowledge to their noggin? Especially when it's Thanksgiving-related tidbits we can use to dazzle our little darlings while we're together over the holiday.

So before you participate in this week's GRAND Social link party, add the following 5 Tips for a Better Thanksgiving through Chemistry to your arsenal for amazing your grandkids — and big kids, too — this Thanksgiving (it's more interesting than it sounds, I promise):

When it comes to Thanksgiving, it's best to expand our brains rather than our bellies, I always say. (Actually, I've never said that before in my life. It sounded good, though, don't ya think?)

Enough turkey talk. Time for the main course: GRAND Social No. 80 link party for grandparent bloggers — and those who enjoy reading them. Thank you for being here! Dig in!

link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:


<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src=" " alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>


  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
