Most children enjoy hearing stories about their familiy's origins and what life was like for parents and grandparents "in the old days." Take the opportunity to build on this innate interest. Ask family members to tell their stories. Have them record them on audiotape. Write down these memories and compile them in book form. Add to the history by researching your family's genealogy on the Internet or at a library. Share your findings with extended family through newsletters or at special showings at a family reunion.
