Family Tree For Children

I have been meaning to do this project for over 2 years now! I don’t know why I waited so long! It was really simple once I gathered all of the pictures!152

Here’s how to do it for yourself!

1. Grab pictures of each family member you want to include(I snagged a bunch off of facebook-right click-save as). Collect them all into one folder and crop them so that all you see is their face. I made sure every picture was in portrait so they would all be the same.043

2. Select all of the photos and then click print.

3. Select “Contact Sheet”044

4. They should look like this when they print. Just Laminate, Cut, and stick Magnets on the back of each picture!045

The first thing we did was put them on our white board. We talked about our family and doodled.


We plan to write names, tell stories, sort(age, type of relative), learn dates of birth, and even use it to talk about serious things like death, divorce, adoption and other “life” situations. It’s also a great way to help kids know who family members are before they come visit or before we go visit them!
