Does your child know where they are in the family structure? Make family tree charts and graphs with these characters dressed in period costumes to represent various ethnic origins. Children may select characters to assign labels to such as mother, father, grandmother, grandfather then choose the appropriate historical garb from Puritans from Plymouth rock to world cultures such as Irish, Spanish, African etc.
I've been researching my own ancestors recently. I thought I'd have some fun giving putting genealogy pod images to my family line when no photos or paintings exist. When the genealogy reaches the end of the line...my ancestor gets an unknown alien origin.
It sure makes for an interesting and colorful family tree.
