Ancestor Trading Cards



Another fun idea...

I made my kids some "Ancestor Trading Cards."

They're about 4x6 laminated cards; the front has a picture of the ancestor, their name, and their relationship to my kids (eg; great-grandmother). The back has their "stats" - birth, death, marriage, parents -- and a couple interesting facts about the person. The idea is to spread them out on the floor/table and match them up with parents/spouse/child to form a family tree.

My kids enjoyed them -- although probably not as much as I enjoyed making them! Lol! Here are a few samples:
