I hope everyone had a great Easter and Passover.

For today’s post – I am focusing on KIDS and how they can dive into their family tree and learn about how the family is connected. I have 4 resources to share with you – 2 of which are FREE! – that will be great for your kids who are budding family historians.

Family Tree Template

It is easy to create a family tree on Canva (free website). Or if you’d like an easy FREE printable, download this generic family tree starter template that the kids can use to fill in themselves and their cousins.

Family Tree Decal

How about a family tree decal for your living room wall or nursery room wall? This beautiful one includes quotes and spaces for 5″x7″ photographs!


Play Detective!

While stuck at home during the Covid-19 Lockdown, now is a perfect time to send the kids on a scavenger hunt throughout the house and attic for family treasures.

Interview Grandma

One of my family’s best resources is a book my great-grandmother wrote and passed down to her grandchildren. She included family names, dates and family stories. And now you too can have your child interview grandma! Courtney Littler has created this adorable spiral-bound book for the kids to interview Grandma. It’s so cute, I wish I had reason to use one myself.
