Holidays are the perfect time to teach youngsters about their heritage. Make it an activity by cutting out copies of vintage baby photos and arranging them on the wall in a “family tree.” Family members can guess who’s who.

You know that I’m all about my family so this was a given for me, I’m going to do this over the food table in Party Central. I can’t decide whether to buy some little embroidery hoops or those little round frames, like we used to use years ago to do this or to throw caution to the wind and just try cutting pictures (not originals – made that mistake once) into circles and gluing them onto some large mouth mason jar lids. Either way, it should be a fun craft to do with the grand-kids.

You’ll probably think that my quote doesn’t go with this craft idea, but everyone one hates to see old pictures of themselves for some odd reason. I guess, we’d all like to think that we went through life looking like movie stars without a hair out of place.  Our old baby photos should prove that to be a fallacy. I love old pictures with teeth missing and cowlicks showing. The camera doesn’t lie.

Why not make it fun and memorable?

The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it. Flannery O’Connor
