Your Family Tree
Sky blue and green construction paper, crayons or markers, scissors, glue stick, leaves
Your child can make a simple but pretty family tree and learn about familial structure. Draw a large tree with many branches. Cut out leaves from the green construction paper or use leaf rubbings. Each leaf will represent a person in the child's family and should be big enough to write that person's name on the leaf. Cut enough leaves for each of the child's siblings, parents, and grandparents. Write the name of each person on one leaf. You can include the relatives' relationship to the child, if you have room. Finish the project by gluing the leaves to the tree. Put the child's generation at the top of the tree, the parents' generation at the second level, and the grandparents' generation at the bottom.
