Fun for Fall Challenge Day 6: Autumn Family Tree

Today's activity will be fun for the entire family and is something you can do year after year to see how much your tree (or the leaves on it) grows!


Materials Needed:
 Paper
 Optional supplies (crayons, paint, markers, glue, etc)


My original plan was to do my family tree with painted hand prints, but with a 1 year old and a 3 year old that wasn't working out for us. So we went to plan B and traced our hands to create autumn leaves. You can try either paint or paper for your tree!



What are some activities you like to do as a family? How often do your kids see their extended family like grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles?


If you missed yesterday's activity, you can find it here. If you haven't signed up for the Fun for Fall Challenge yet, you can do so here.

Neat! Our main activity we do together is church but, we like going to the park every now & then together. Dd sees her great-grandmother & my dad almost everyday since we're all neighbors. Everybody else she sees at least once or twice every week/every other week.

I've seen a lot of activities like this on pinterest! They are so cute! :)
My kids get to see my side often and hubby's family every once in a while and hollidays. We're lucky we live so close to all our family!

my kids see their grandparents, aunts and uncles a few times a month, and other set of aunts, uncles and cousins once a year

cute idea.....As a family we got to the rennasaince festival (we all dress up). They see extended family about 2 times a year due to distance....we are military and live currently far away.
