Family History ABCs


To play this family history game, remove pages 24–25 from the magazine. Glue them onto lightweight cardboard; let dry. Cut out the picture cards and put them into a small, sturdy bag. Have the first player draw out one card from the grab bag and tell what the person or action or thing named on it has to do with family history. There are no “wrong” answers. If the person drawing the card can’t think of an answer, the other players may help. After playing the game, have each family member choose something that he or she will do during the coming week or month to add to your family’s history.
