Yes, you can do this with 




please explain your question what you are trying to do.

It is an expensive operation to find direct/indirect children. But have a look over this

from selenium import webdriver

driver = webdriver.Firefox()


header = driver.find_element_by_id("header")

# start from your target element, here for example, "header"

all_children_by_css = header.find_elements_by_css_selector("*")

all_children_by_xpath = header.find_elements_by_xpath(".//*")

print 'len(all_children_by_css): ' + str(len(all_children_by_css))

print 'len(all_children_by_xpath): ' + str(len(all_children_by_xpath))
