Family trees can tell us so much about how our history shapes our life today. The recent NBC show Who Do You Think You Are follows celebrities as they go on their personal journeys of self discovery. In each episode the celebrities uncover stories of heroism and tragedy, love and betrayal, secrets and intrigue, that lie at the heart of their family history.
We love the aspect of history that Who Do You Think You Are highlights for the viewers and it got us thinking about looking into our own family history with our kids. We found the site Family Tree Kids really helpful to help kids play detective and learn about family history. There are free, fun activities such as scavenger hunts in Grandma’s attic, interviewing a relative, etc. for kids and adults that help you build your family tree! We give the site 2 thumbs up and had to share it with you.
Enjoy learning and sharing your family history with your children!
