Double-Decker Excursion

Cultivate a lasting bond between a grandparent ("Big G") and a grandchild ("Little G") with Patricia Carlin's set of twenty shared activities that will become a treasured keepsake of experiences enjoyed together.

Each gets their own set of color-coordinated adventure decks, along with an ID card, to experience a variety of creative and fun activities as a team. They range from joyfully silly to playfully scientific: "One For the Road" revs up road trips with classic license plate spotting and State trivia; "Do, Re, Mi..." invites a reality TV-style talent show; "Buggin' Out" coaxes out the naturalist in young and old. There's even a card dedicated to the red-carpet "Grandee Awards." Each activity card has a counterpart in the other deck, with structured space on the back to record results, make drawings, play graphically-guided games, and write commemorative comments for each adventure.

Big and Little G don't have to do the activities in any particular order or finish them all in one day, but once all the adventures are complete, the included boxes for the pair to exchange their sets of completed cards make them priceless, detailed mementos of quality time together. They can reflect on the experience for years to come, remembering how much their bond has grown over the course of this grand adventure. Illustrated by Patricia Carlin. Made in Brooklyn, New York.

Patricia Carlin believes that a small sketch has the power to tell a story without language. She started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business, so Patricia designed and wrote copy for several products for the new venture. Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me, paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says.
