This is an EMAIL swap (my first time doing an electronic swap, as I generally prefer hand written, but if you want to hand write it you can then email a scan or photo of it instead of typing it. Given the current pandemic I thought it might be good practice to do electronic instead of an actual mail swap for once). For this swap let's give those grandparents a call on the phone and ask them some questions to get to know things we perhaps didnt know! It could be a good activity to entertain us all right now. You may chose an alternate person if you do not have a grandparent who is living or available (ex: father/mother/the elderly neighbor lady your friends with... just someone older than you in your life that you'd like to learn about). You may do this with multiple people (ex: both grandpa and grandma) if you wish but only one is required. Ask them the list of questions, write out their responses and email it to your partner. Try to learn something interesting about your loved one and share what you learn with your partner! (My apologies if this has been done, I'm sure something similar has been done before, I just thought it would be fun!). I will angel if you need me to, just let me know :)
