Here a few ideas:

1. Graphing number of people in family

2. Glyph about your family. (you can use a picture of a house- or a child)

3. I usually send home an apple the first week of school (we do families as the second theme of our year) and ask the families to glue family pics on one side and family name on the other. (I use Apples b/c I hang them from the ceiling in September and then use them for our family theme)

4. We do family paper dolls. I give the students pre-cut paper dolls and they choose a doll for each person in their family- decorate each one with crayons- draw a background setting and then glue the paper dolls to the page. Sometimes I even ask them to label the pics. (Mom, dad, and brother and sister names are usually words they can spell)

5. We make collages from magazine pics. (families doing activities together)
Hope this helps.
