Easy Family Egg Pods 

Check the Pod People for different costumes for world cultures.  I initially placed the pod egg people on this page but soon realized the pod people would fill out the family tree page and crowd out charts and forms, so I moved them all to this page and will soon be adding lots more pods.

Family tree charts are great tools for helping children visualize the family structure which may provide comfort by giving children structure and comfort about familial connections.

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.
