Project

Birds of a Feather Family Tree

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.

Materials

Steps

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Step 3

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

    My sisters and I completed this project with our mom for her birthday, using our own family tree template that we made ourselves! I'm sharing this with all my friends.
