Some think the elderly lead a boring life, playing bingo all the time, but these people couldn't be further from the truth. To crush the negative stereotypes about the senior citizens, Bored Panda has compiled a list of some of the funniest times grandparents surprised everyone around them.

From creating a DIY butter dish to providing the birds with materials for their nests, these unforgettable moments prove that the grey-haired folks are capable of much more than sitting around all day, looking for their glasses. Scroll down to catch a glimpse of how interesting your life would look like if you visited your grandparents more often and vote for your favorite pics!

Vira Phillips

He didn't suggest that 69 is old. The title of the section is about grandparents making life interesting and he is presenting an artful cake that his grandmother made for her 69th birthday. I'm picking up a couple of other things from it in that the old adage is that cats have 9 lives. She put a 9 on each cat but the way she has them cuddling gives us 69. Then there's also the naughty factor. Way to go Grandma. I'm 70. I deal with some health issues but I still have some good years left. And I still have a sense of humor. Nowhere did he make reference that he thinks she's old. He simply said he thought we might enjoy the cake she made.

She made her own cake because she's awesome at it and wanted to use her decorating skills to do a thing. And that thing is awesome. 👍 And yes the 13-year-old sense of humor in me does get the accidental double entendre, but it's subtle and the experience of the other 18 years is telling me to knock it off, lol.

When my 69th was coming up I told my son I was depressed. Why? Because I was only one year off 70 and would then have to call myself 'old'. So he gave me a card which read 'Congratulations - you are now the same age upside down!' Whoopie! Now I can't wait for my 96th. :D
