A couple years ago, I made photo felt family trees for my nephews and niece for Christmas. I glued velcro to the back of each circle so the kids could move the family members on and off of the family tree and play. This is a wonderful teaching aid or storytelling aid that I use often when I’m teaching children about family history and relationships to ancestors.
I wrote a tutorial for making your own photo family tree here, Felt Family Tree – Interactive Activity for Kids, but for those of you who are not interested in doing all the work yourself, I put together a kit that you can buy. All you have to do is get the photos of your family members ready to put on the tree, and put it all together. Step by step directions are included in the kit!
