LOCKDOWN has been tough for many families who would normally see their grandparents every day but have now been apart for weeks.

So to put a smile on their faces, we asked you to send in your messages from your little ones to their grandparents.

We'll be printing as many messages as we can in our special Life in Lockdown supplement in the paper on Wednesday.

But for now keep scrolling to see your messages.

Please send us a picture of your children along with their names and their message for their grandparents
