Family Reunion Activities, Ages 13-17

Doggone it...I really dont like Martha Stewart, but someone in her camp came up with a project that I simply love. It is based on a family tree (as are my other activites for ages, 2-5 and 6-12)

Hand-Lettered Family Tree

The design of this tree is a simple arrangement of names in white ink on brown paper.

Begin by forming the treeís trunk with all the names of the present generation of siblings.
Create two branches, which move off to the left and right, to represent each parent; the length of each personís names will determine the length of each of the branches. Annotate their marriage date with a little twig that shoots off from the base of where these branches join.
Grandparents, great-grandparents, and so on form the subsequent splits in the branches. Each V marks a spot where two people were joined in marriage. At the base of each split, mark the marriage date with a little twig.
