Yes, please notice the white lapbook-new product my friend is making,
and also note the 3 hole punched strip at the side of the lapbook-
that is one of the best things since sliced bread-
now you can add one of these to your book and it pops
into a 3 ring binder to stay safe and cozy like.
So all in all-we watched several (mostly bad) DVDs on the Nutcracker* to introduce ourselves to this story (which my dd and I already have seen/known about) and jump start our look-see into Mr. Tchaikovsky's life. We read several books not only on the ballet, but on Mr. Tchaikovsky (our favorites were Tchaikovsky Discovers America by Esther Kalman, and The Nutcracker by Susan Jeffers) as well. We added in a few mini-booklets, the puppets (minus the popsicle sticks, as we just used them to decorate the lapbook), and the timeline on him to complete our project.
I do have lots of lapbook examples on my Scrapbook and Lapbooks by Sheri blog, if you are in need of ideas for ways to turn your materials into keepsake projects. All you need to do is convert the ideas to your current needs regarding your subject of study. The post describing what I did to create this lapbook can be found here.
Hope you are inspired to try turning one of your CM studies into a lovely keepsake lapbook. I think you'll be glad you did!
*The Nutcracker with Macaulay Culkin was OK, the best we saw. Strangely, it ended like right after the Sugar Plum stuff; which was odd-it left us hanging.
