Grandparents Plaque

Grandparents have pretty much one job, and it’'s to spoil their grandkids. It’'s probably what helps create that special bond between them and their grandkids. Think about it, wasn'’t the first time you had ice cream for dinner when you were spending the weekend with your grandparents? Well, we’'re certain your kids will love this adorable DIY clip-frame plaque for grandma and grandpa to proudly hang in their house.

Proudly show off your grandparents' grand new plaque! An even grander idea -- get Nana and Pops in the pic too! Then post with the hashtag: #ACMooreInspired
