Photo fun with watercolors and how to find ancestor photos

Watercolor Photos

Looking for fun ways to get kids interested in family stories? Try printing out a black and white family photo and letting them use watercolors to paint it! It’s a great way to capture their attention while you tell them the story of the person they are painting. Check out this post for the easiest way to find and view photos of your ancestors – you might make some new discoveries!

If you do this activity, please tag us on social media and we’ll highlight you – my kids love seeing when they have inspired others!
