Family Collections

Many people collect things: coins, rocks, trophies—even bugs! Collections represent things that are important to us. Learning about what family members collected can help you appreciate them in new ways.

Possible Activities

  • What type of things have you collected or are you collecting now? Why were those collections important to you? What memories do you have as you look through your collections today? Is there something you would like to collect? Start now!

  • What kinds of things have others in your family collected? Ask them to tell you about what they collected and why it was important to them, and ask them to show you their collections, if possible.
