An interview with a family member

If you are going on vacation or have a family member living close by, take time to let your child inview them to learn and preserve the family history.

Supplies needed:

a tape recorder or video camera

empty cassette tape or videotape (30 minute ones are best)

family member to interview

a quiet place

Before you begin let child help you think of questions to ask…..things they would like to know about. 

Where they were born? Tell me about your childhood, family, home, school, first jobs, best birthday and, etc.

The child may want to ask to see a few favorite photos. Be sure to add label on tape of person interviewed, interviewer, and the date and place.  Everyone will enjoy this in later years.
