{Family History} Make a Family Tree

I love this creative idea to teach children about their family history. I like how visual the birds are in bright colors. This would be fun in a child’s room or playroom.

Help your kids visualize their extended family in a cute and colorful way. Use our tree template to transfer the tree onto a bedroom or playroom wall, and paint. Then use the bird templates to depict the grandparents and successive generations.

Step 1

Print the tree and bird templates. If you have a projector, use it to project image onto wall, and trace with pencil. Otherwise, print on multiple sheets of paper and tape together. Tape templates to wall and, with transfer paper taped beneath, trace outline

Step 2


Using transfer paper, trace birds onto limbs. (Start with owl grandparents at bottom, then branch up and out with children and grandchildren.) Paint tree; let dry.

Step 3


Paint birds; let dry. With fine-tip brush, write in names.
