Craft Activity People and Dolls Image Printables
This section contains anything with people and anything fictional that resembles people in effigy such as snowmen and angels. You may find the family tree charts to be most useful in teaching children about their lineage and heritage.
The opportunity arose after a breakup in the family where one parent tried to turn the children against the other. Having experienced that pain first-hand as a child I decided to exert my authority and wisdom as a grand parent and teach the children who they are and where they fit into the family structure. What I did was I printed out two Easy Family Tree charts and one set of extra people for cutting and pasting if necessary.
I set out two little bowls of snackies and some marking pens, and proceeded to have the children label each person on the chart and circle their mother and father to distinguish their importance to the children.

I then explained what a step parent was and had the kids circle that association with a different colored marker than the one signifying their actual parents. I used stick on, multi-colored stars, hearts and circles for them to place on natural siblings, step persons and adopted relatives. Once we were through the kids had big beautiful, and meaningful, family tree charts to hang on their bedroom walls, decorated in their own hand writing with their own personal, colorful touches.
I believe this really helped the children determine where everyone came from in this big beautiful multicultural family of ours complete with loving inlaws, ex-laws and outlaws!
Let the children help decorate for the holiday, special occasion and every day season with these print to color ornament craft printables. Decorate the Christmas tree, office cubicle, window panes with pretty paper hanging ornaments.
