Decorate your Family Tree

Make and decorate a family tree with leaves that represent the personal qualities of three generations: you, your mother, and your children.

instructions

Collect some twigs, some leaves, glitter, baubles, gems, material, whatever you fancy to build yourself a little tree. Keep it upright in a ball of playdough or plasticine.

Choose 3 special leaves and write on each 3 adjectives or descriptive words that describe first, your mum (at the root of the tree), you as a mum (in the middle) and your children (at the top). You can add more than one leaf at the top for more children if you want or simply use the 3 words to describe all your children.

Big thanks to Stevie for this idea - collecting materials and making the trees is a great activity to do with your children too.
