Create your own short rhyme about what family means to you, and then use the poem on a layout.
Jot down a trait you share in common with a parent or one of your traits you've seen your child develop. On your layout, consider using photos taken when you were the same age.

Consider ideas such as making meals for one another, attending sporting events of family members, reading to each other, teaching younger siblings new tricks, and giving praise or encouragement.
Make a layout about how your family is your greatest joy. Be specific on the items you include.
Record the similarities and differences in personality of the members of your family.
Describe a time when your family has helped ground you and give you perspective. Perhaps it was a moment from the past, or it could be a daily occurrence!
Share a quirk unique to your family, but one that you embrace. Think about mealtime traditions, game-time personalities, funny sayings, and more. Have you recorded it on a layout yet? If not, make today the day!
