and you are very happy when they come to visit. But after a few days of playing cards and board games, swimming at


pool, and hitting a few tennis balls with them, you are probably wondering how to keep them amused for the rest of their stay. Luckily, Channel 22 has

produced a two-part series called “Visiting Grandkids - What to Do?” Reporter KT


has checked out activities and events around the Goodyear and Phoenix areas and put together a list that you can use to make your grandchildren’s time in Arizona even more fun. She says her goal was to balance outdoor activities such as amusement parks with

educational places such as the museums and zoos. As well, Reporters Pat Ingalls,


Palmer and Carrie Mataraza visited some of the locations such as the World Wildlife Zoo and Aquarium, the White Tanks Riding Stables and the Musical Instruments Museum to give you a look at what to expect at these places. You can watch the “Visiting

Grandkids – What to Do” video every day on Channel 22 at 9 a.m., 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Even if you don’t have Cox Cable, you can still watch both the March and April videos on the Channel 22 website at www.channel22. info.
