Family Tree


This family tree display makes a great project (and poster) at any time of year, but also an unusual and special gift for Grandparent's Day. You could also adapt this craft for autumn by making the tree in autumn colours, or for Thanksgiving by using autumn colours and writing a grateful message on each of the leaves.

Family Tree

You will need:

Brown paint
Large sheet of paper
Pale green paper (or orange and yellow paper if you are doing this during Autumn(



Paint a tree on to the paper with brown paint.

Cut out lots of leaves from the green paper. On each leaf draw a different member of your family. Glue your leaves to the tree.

Older children could try and draw their tree branches and stick their leaves in such a way as to show the generations.


Make a 3D tree. Find a branch/ twig and pop it into a vase or pot. On the back of each leaf write one reason why you love that member of your family. Punch a hole in the top of each leaf and tie them to the tree.
