My family tree

​​​​​​​

Trees are a very important part of Calgary’s landscape. They provide shelter and food for animal families and fun and adventure for human families.

Do you have a family? Have you ever heard of a family tree? A family tree shows who is in your family. Now you can create your own family tree! Who is in your family? What does your family tree look like?

Supplies:

  • Paper to paint on
  • Paintbrush
  • Paint (green to look like summer leaves or coloured for fall leaves)
  • Painting apron

Directions

​​​​​​​​​​​​

Step one

Paint your tree trunk. Let it dry.




​​
​​​​

Step two

Put green paint on your hand. Place your handprint onto your tree. Your handprint will look like the leaves on the tree.




​​
​​​​

Step three

Ask each member of your family to be a handprint on your family tree or use your own hand for more branches. Label each family member's hand.
