Paper Family Tree

Published on January 20, 2015


Make a child’s family tree from construction paper.

Your child can make a simple but pretty family tree and learn about family’s heritage.

Supplies needed:

  • Sky blue and green construction paper
  • Crayons, tempera paint, or markers
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick

Method:

1.Draw a large tree with many branches.

2. Cut out leaves from the green construction paper or use leaf rubbings that you cut out.

Each leaf will represent a person in the child’s family and should be big enough to write that person’s name on the leaf. Cut enough leaves for each of the child’s siblings, parents, and grandparents (or more!).

Write the name of each person on their leaf. You might want to include the relative’s relationship to the child, like “Grandma Joan Smith.”

3. Glue the leaves to the tree. Put the child’s generation at the top of the tree, the parents at the second level, and the grandparents at the bottom.

A reader from Alaska wrote to say that she and her son added extra leaves for local animals (birds, wolves, moose and bears). She also suggested using leaf-rubbings instead of plain construction paper leaves!
