When our granddaughter got an award at school we brought her flowers. Now, her little brother is getting an award and I would like an idea of what to bring him. He is in kindergarten and I don't think flowers would be appropriate. Would a balloon be better?

Hello Grandparents,

How wonderful for your grandchildren! Awards already!

Your question is interesting. Flowers for the girl but what for a boy. I suggest you think of something that will let him know you are proud of him and are acknowledging his accomplishment. That is what the flowers meant to his sister. If beautiful, colorful balloons convey that sentiment for him, then balloons are an excellent choice. As long as he feels your care, your gift will be fine.
