Make a Family Tree like Peyton did!       


We use pictures of trees to represent our family. Families have ‘roots,’ just like a tree does!  Your family’s roots are the people who came before you and your parents, like your grandparents, great-grandparents, and their great-grandparents!!

And just like trees, families continue to grow all the time.

Are you ready to make your Family Tree? Let’s get started!


1. Make a List of Your Family Members!

Start by writing your own name, and then continue until you have everyone on the list. Peyton used the first letter of each person’s name instead of the whole name, and you can do that too!

Try organizing your list like this:





2. Draw Your Tree!

You can make your Family Tree look however you would like to— and any use colors you like!

3. Add Your Family…

Peyton made an apple on her tree for every family member. You can do the same, or write their names out!

4. You Can Add Your Family Tree to Our Gallery. Have an adult help you with this step!

Create a PDF file, and name the file with the child’s first name only
