Lots of fun ideas in here, IMO! Though I have no need to be the "favorite grandparent" (just a GP who is loved and enjoyed is fine with me!), I'm going to try some of them and, of course, have done a few others ( my grandkids love when we play hide-and-seek, among other things). I don't know how good I'd be with camping out but taking the kids out to look at the stars, for a while, is something I know both my husband and I would enjoy. And I'm not too fond of puddle-jumping (I realize most kids enjoy it) or playing in the mud. But even if I were, I'd check with the parents first, to make sure it was ok with them, too. But as long as the parents are cool with them, I think most of these suggestions sound like a "go."
