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!
