Davie Senior Services kicked off the Christmas season with the quarterly Grandparents and Me event with Smart Start of Davie County on Friday, Dec. 1.

Allison Gupton and Tara Dodson from Davie Smart Start plan the programs each month with Senior Services to provide a fun Friday morning activity for grandparents and grandchildren.

For this month, the program was about dinosaurs and dragons. Gupton read stories about dinosaurs and dragons while sitting beside the decorated Christmas tree.

Following the story, the children were able to learn how to be a dragon. They learned how to stomp like a dragon and even take deep breaths like a dragon.

Once they were finished with story time, the children found their grandparents and worked on a dragon craft together.

To close the event, snacks were passed out and a there was a visit from Santa Claus. Everyone was able to take their picture with Santa and receive a candy cane.

The next Grandparents and Me will be Friday, Feb. 8 at 10 a.m. at the Senior Services Main Campus, 278 Meroney St., Mocksville. To sign up for the event, call Senior Services at 336-753-6230 or Smart Start at 336-751-2113.
