Here’s a clever idea from the Mads Memories blog. Take the classic game Guess Who? and make it your own. Replace the game’s photos with those of your family and you’ll have your kids become very familiar with who their relatives are, especially those they don’t get to see very often. You can even use photos of your ancestors to help teach your kids more about your family’s history.

Here’s a neat idea – turn your family tree into a personalized memory game. Similar to the game concentration, you can create a family history memory game by using your own family photos. You can get creative with how you want to print out your cards.
