I love my family! Η οικογένειά μου!

 A family tree! Maya and I really love this one. We update it every now and then - it started with the four of us (μαμά, μπαμπά, Μάια, Θέα) and now we have added up to cousins, aunts and uncles and grandparents too!

You can make your own simple tree by cutting a brown rectangle for a trunk and a green cloud for the leaves. If you are feeling more adventurous you may want to draw a more elaborate tree. Once you have your tree you can add the family member leaves and why not, attach a picture for each member of the family as well. Decorate them, cut them, laminate them if you like. You could add some texture to the trunk by gluing  different materials on it such as sand, pebbles, felt paper, macaroni or really anything else you may think of or have available. You could also use some real leaves/green felt paper/green paper strips to give it some extra volume and texture. A lovely craft!
