Family Tree Quilt

Another great project for kids is a family tree quilt. You will need to find a pattern for this quilt, since it includes a large tree. You can have your son or daughter cut out all the pieces, while you work on piecing them together and sewing. Once you have the tree assembled and the quilt, it will be time to add family photos to each branch. This quilt is more of a keepsake than a daily use item.
You can probably find a kit at most craft stores to turn photos into iron-ons, or you can also use fabric glue to affix the photos to the fabric. If you will be using glue, it is probably better to laminate the photos first. This will prevent them from being scratched or harmed.
