Even though we have always lived away from our family, with our recent move the girls felt as though we are even farther away. And of course they had to leave their friends behind. So to make it easier and remind them of those they love who live far away, I made these magnets of their family and friends.
Using photoshop, I cropped recent photos and then resized them so that they would look similar when I printed the wallet sized photos. I also added the names to each picture to make it a pre-reading activity as well. We’ve also used the cards to make family trees and talk about relationships.
This is just a great way to keep family that lives far away close by. I wish I had done it sooner when the girls were babies and recommend it to all my friends with little ones who are growing up far from loved ones.
