More artwork and a foray into lapbooking

Where has my time gone? It seems like ages that I've had a chance to sit at the computer for more than 4 minutes. Life with little kids all around is definately exciting, that's for sure. The laundry and dishes alone make for very busy days.

We've been having lots of fun making artwork over the last few weeks. On the weekend we took the time to organize what we've been learning about insects into a lapbook. Lapbooks are a fun way of visually organizing information. Typically you take a file folder and fold both sides towards the middle like window shutters, and then you decorate the whole thing with little books or pictures about what you've been learning. Sort of like a report that an older child would write.

This was our first try at a lapbook and we all had fun making it together (wow, does it ever make the house messy making all those crafty things). We are going to try doing a little bee book this week.

You can click on the album below to go see our pictures of the lapbook. There are also other pictures there that E has been working on over the last month or so.

Wow, you guys have been busy! The lapbook looks awesome. And I like the picture of Mommy and Daddy ;-).
