And then there is the matter of "extended family". That shouldn't be so hard to express, but there is a cultural chasm there. What we English speakers consider distant relatives are not considered so distant in the Spanish-speaking world. And further, the phrase just doesn't seem to to translate. I got "familia lejana" when I looked online, but that doesn't include the close family. "Familia cercana y lejana" seems awkward and wordy. So I settled on "familia completa".
That's a long introduction for this crossword puzzle I made. It has all the family, including such things as great great grandmother, stepfather, half-brother, godfather, and ancestors, etc. It is meant for Spanish II students - those who are ready to go beyond the basic family vocabulary. With the exception of the words "godmother" and "godfather", which would require very lengthy explanations, all the definitions are in Spanish.
I might have the chance to put together an answer key tomorrow, but I have to do a peer observation and it's a late night with senior project presentations, so I might not.
I hope you're off to a good week!
