Kids craft their own very special family tree—and then get to show off their roots!

This activity is appropriate for:
pre-k - 4th grade / 3 - 9 years

You will need:

Before You Begin:

  • Print out the tree templates and use them to trace onto cardstock.
  • Cut out the trees and use the guidelines to cut vertically along half of each trunk.

NOTE: To make gluing easier, try pouring small amounts of glue into collage bowls or paper bowls. Then provide children with paintbrushes for spreading the glue onto their crafts.


  1. Provide each child with both parts of the tree.
  2. Direct children to lay the tree parts flat and decorate them with the craft materials.
  3. Have children join the parts together to make the tree.
  4. Next, invite children to select pictures of their family members to display on the tree. Then have them glue the pictures onto the tree.
  5. Once this family tree is dry, it’s ready to display!
