The children have been busy thinking of crafts that they would like to do, and Noah said that they felt like they had Bookmark Fever. Are you wondering what the symptoms are? Well for some unexplained reason you feel like making tons of bookmarks and you may giggle alot as well.
Here is a brief tutorial on how the children made there bookmarks!
They first cut out some rectangular shapes from the file folders we use for lapbooking.
Then they recycled a nature magazine that we had by going though it and cutting out there favorite pictures that they thought would look nice as a bookmark.
Then they glued them onto the rectangular pieces.
We then chose to laminate them since we do have one on hand from our homeschooling. It is a nice thing to have if you are looking for an inexpensive one for laminating your childs art or schoolwork Walmart now sells one for around 25$ and this is the one we have it works very well.
The children then punched holes in the top of some of them and added ribbons and beads. And now we have tons of bookmarks for all our favorite books and our bibles and even a few to pass on to friends!
Okay maybe that wasn't so brief lol! Here is what we are doing on our nature study. The children visited with a new butterfly the clouded skipper! They have also been catching lots and lots of lizards looking for all different kinds. And we are still enjoying all the butterflies, drawing and even painting some.
Here are some snapshots of our Nature Study.
