For this activity you will need: a white poster board, scissors, a marker, a pencil, a ruler, yarn, tape, small photos of ancestors, and an assortment of scrapbook paper.
First, I drew a simple 'puffy' cloud on the poster board in pencil and then cut it out. Next, we chose six patterns of scrapbook paper. My daughter and I decided to do rainbow colors, so we chose patterns in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, but obviously you can do whatever patterns or color you like.
I cut the scrapbook into 3-inch squares. Then, I folded each square, drew half of a heart on the fold and cut to get a nice symmetric heart. (I did let my daughter help with the cutting, since this is a skill they are working on in preschool, but she became bored with it after a few hearts, so I took over.)
Next, I printed out small photos of my daughter's ancestors. As we have done before, we talked about what an ancestor is and I named all of the people in the photos as we glued them on the hearts. If you do not have enough photos of direct ancestors (grandparents, great-grandparents, etc.), feel free to use photos of aunts and uncles as well.
