This holiday season, Bridges Together has a gift for YOU! It’s the gift of connection and relationship, which is what intergenerational work is all about!
If you know a teacher in Massachusetts: Give the gift of the award-winning and Common Core-supporting Bridges Program Curricula Suite. Thanks to the Tufts Health Plan Foundation and the Massachusetts Association of Councils on Aging, Bridges Together has grants available to bring the Bridges program to your community! Find out more here and then contact Intergenerational Facilitator Julie Shaw for more information.
If you are a grandparent looking to connect with your grandchild: Try our Grand Conversation Cards. Designed to spark meaningful dialogue between different generations, this deck of 40 cards contains questions that are guaranteed to get the conversation flowing. (You can purchase a deck right here.)
If you are a parent looking for some fun activities to keep the kids engaged while they’re out of school: Take a look at our family tree worksheets (one for biological family and one for a child’s “circle of love”) as well as our You’re a Gift to This World poem and worksheet. Also be sure to check out our list of intergenerational-themed books — we’ve got something for preschoolers to adults!
Happy Holidays from Bridges Together!
