A Modern Family Tree on the Wall

Martha Stewart

Family trees have come leaps and bounds from the stuffy books our Grandparents used to keep. Help kids keep track of their roots (or owls in this case) with this fresh take on their heritage.

On Martha Stewart.com you can not only find the template for this tree, but the owls as well. We think each family could have a branch to help little ones keep folks straight. If you have a small group you might not have thought about a family tree with much consideration in the past, but even if your numbers are small, this is still a great way to teach children about other generations. Plus, it doesn't hurt that the whole motif is pretty easy on the eyes.

Check out the full tutorial on Martha Stewart and even if you're not into the whole generational tree idea, you could still whip up some sweet decor for a bedroom or birthday party!
