Reading: either audio books during lunch or travel places or reading things that you really enjoyed when you were a kid. When Grandma arrives, it would be really cool if the kids could spend time learning about (and writing down) stuff about her life, stories about her family, going through old photos and things like that. All of that can REALLY bring history to life.
