Does your child know where they are in the family structure? This easy to understand, family tree diagram can help you catalog the family structure. Your child will love learning about their genealogical history.
Print the charts as large as possible on heavy-duty paper. Cut out the extra people shapes then paste them in the appropriate places in the family hierarchy.
Label the people shapes " Mother, Father, sister, brother" etc., then add color coded, self-adhesive stickers such as stars, hearts and other shapes to designate status in the family.
Decorate the ancestry diagram with markers or Crayons for an extremely rewarding and educational project for children. Give them a memory they will treasure for a lifetime.
