I helped my girls write stories. Then they surprised their father by giving him the books as a birthday present. The adults bought some gift cards to her favorite shopping spots and restaurants.
We assigned a gift card to each of her 11 grandchildren and asked the kids to write a story that connected to the gift card in some way. Each grandchild wrote and illustrated one page of a story about Super Grandma saving the day around town. We put each page into a plastic sheet protector and bound the pages together in a three-ring binder.
Finally, the adults added the gift cards next to the appropriate pages in the story that referenced each shop or restaurant. She had a great time using the gift cards and still has a special book from her grandchildren to treasure and share with her friends.
