- Watch the video together and ask kids: Who are the people in your family? Remind kids that families come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes they include grandparents; sometimes one or two parents, or even more; sometimes they include brothers and sisters.

- Invite kids to draw a family portrait and display it for everyone to see.
