Are you looking for a fun family activity that’s brings your family together?
Look no further. This fun activity lets you break out some family photos, talk about some outfits from the past, and have the kids create their own story around some of the clothes in question, then tell it!
We recommend doing this activity over snacks, just be careful to keep your photos clean!
Step 1: Get 10-15 pictures of family members past and present. Ideally a mix of “wild” outfits and ones with family significance, and a few sheets of blank paper.
Step 2: Sit at a table and go through the photos asking the kids what they think of the outfits, and use it as an opportunity to talk about any family history and stories important to you.
Step 3: Once you’ve gone through all the photos ask the kids to pick their most and least favorite looks. Ask them to draw their version of it on once piece of paper. You can make this a race or contest if you want if you have a prize handy! It’s best if you also pick your most and least favorite.
Step 4: Next, tell the kids they have to make. up a story about their favorite outfit. It can be written out, or spoken. Everyone (including you) should write or tell a story.
Wrap up the activity by talking with the kids about the family member in their favorite photo and encourage their creative efforts in storytelling and drawing.
