Fun Family Moments with a Printable Family Tree Template for Kids


Sitting together around the family table with a family tree template for kids can be both educational and fun. And all depending on how much work you put into it, it can be an easy, quick project or it can be more long-stretched depending on the amount of research required.

Most likely young children will prefer the easy family trees whereas the older kids will have more fun filling out more extended and complicated family tree charts.

Therefore this page is divided three sections:

  • Easy and fun printable family trees for young kids
  • Larger printable family trees for older children
  • Larger and more complicated family tree charts for kids who love a challenge

Please notice that all the blank family tree charts on this page and site are free to print. However, they are for private use only, thanks. 🙂

The Orange Tree – Family Tree Project for Kids

Easy family tree to fill out for smaller children. Orange tree.

First just print out the picture – even though it looks quite small on the scree it does have the perfect size for an A4 piece of paper (26 cm x 17,7 cm).

You can either encourage them to write the names of your family members inside the oranges or you can print out family photos and cut them into circles with a pair of scissors and then glue them onto the oranges.
