My Family Crest


A family is made up of different members, who each have their own unique gifts and interests.

Design a special crest for your family. You could include your parents, brothers and sisters, or grandparents and pets too. Think about what makes each member unique and special and choose a symbol and colour to represent each person.

What are your special gifts and talents? Perhaps you are gentle, good at sports or a bit of an explorer.
