Pre-Opening Activity

Family Tree


Use a piece of barn wood, weathered strip of lumber or slab cut from log for backing. Have boys pick up sticks and choose one for each member of their family. Supply each boy with one walnut, glue and enough pairs of 4mm wiggle eyes for all his family. Knot holes, branch stubs and bark patterns all add interest and make each boy's family tree unique. Glue eyes to sticks and to nut towards bottom this should be an extra family member because "there's at least one nut in every family." Spray with acrylic to seal.
