Be sure to ask your grandparents if it is OK to record their comments. Try to ask them interesting questions about their youth, where they grew up, how they met each other, what they did on their first date, and what there best memory is with each other. Enjoy ice cream together afterwards.

Teach each other a new skill or craft. You will find out how well they relate to your skills and following your directions.
