Time flies! Here's a Christmas present that we created for grandparents when the kids were 5 and 7 yrs. old. We had just moved and the kids were excited to share the mountains with their grandparents! The grandparents talked about these pillowcases for years afterwards. Maybe this will give you an idea for a Christmas present this year!

FamilySearch does not own Ancestry.com and Ancestry.com does not own FamilySearch! So, what is FamilySearch? Here is a brief video that explains what FamilySearch is. Hope this helps the confusion that still abounds!

1. We thought of funny/cute/silly/ stories.
2. The kids did their best drawings to illustrate the stories.
3. We printed them and sent them to family members.
Easy as that! We didn't do it in one fell swoop! I think that we took about a month to put it together. Remember the attention spans of your kids. It won't be fun if you hurry the process. Best of all, our family members got to know our family a little better because we didn't live by any of them. Try something like this! My kids (now ages 23 and 26) still gush about how fun this activity was! Don't forget to make an archival copy for your family and kids!
|Since we are LDS, we patterned after the Book of Mormon. You could do anything that fits your family!|
