Six Family History Ideas for Family Home Evening

On's Family History Topics, there is a valuable resource for holding family history themed Family Home Evenings. Here is a screenshot showing the webpage:

The introduction to the activities is as follows:
In an article in the March 2013 New York Times entitled “The Stories That Bind Us,” author Bruce Feiler shared psychologists’ findings that the more children knew about their family history, the better they were able to handle stressful situations. The reasons were that the children realized they were a part of something bigger than themselves, they understood their family overcame many ups and downs, and they believed they could overcome difficulties too. 
These family home evening ideas will help your family learn more about your extended family and start building bonds with parents, grandparents, and ancestors.
All of the suggested activities are excellent opportunities to interact with both younger and older children. It also does not take much imagination to come up with a number of other, more individual family related, activities that will help to turn the hearts of your children to their fathers.
