If you need some creative inspiration for the upcoming school year check out these awesome lapbooks.
If you are thinking, what is a lapbook? click over and read my lapbooking article. We’ve used them over the years in various subjects and my children always remember the concepts that were reinforced while making these books.
I only wish I was a little more creative and able to come up with ideas for creating lap books to go with our current curriculum.
Since I’m not a crafty homeschooler I usually search the web to look for inspiration. I’ve decided to feature several homeschool moms who have much more creativity than I do!
Click on the links to see how they put their projects together. Many of these lap book projects feature free printables to help your children make their own books.

If you are new to lapbooking a fun way to being is to make lapbooks for each season. You can tie it in with your science lessons and lapbooks are great for portfolios. Last year I purchased The Ultimate Lap Book Handbook and used it for ideas and inspiration.
I also learned this summer that there is a whole series of Apologia Lapbook products for those of you who are using the Exploring Creation Through… series. If you are looking for science lapbook ideas you might want to check out the curriculum.
Wow! Thanks for these resources! I love the one about Story of the World. We will be using that this year and this will compliment what we cover so much.
Homeschool Share also has a great amount of free printables to use for lapbooking…many to go with curriculum and literature studies. I just discovered their printables to go along with Amanda Bennett’s Ocean Unit Study…I am loving it!

I have found TONS of lapbook ideas available on Pinterest. I even dedicated a whole board to them so that I could refer to the ideas without having to search through everything else in my Pnterest account.

I love these! They are like file folder games and I know we are going to be starting to use them very soon!!!
drawn by the multiplication lapboard but I can’t access it. We’re new to homeschooling and DD is really struggling with that. It looked like a fun and interesting tool.
These are so lovely. We are on our second lapbook, my kids are 5 and 7 and have learnt so much so well so quickly, amazing! So, I will be shamelessly using your idead. I also can’t access the multiplication one and hadn’t thought of using it for numeracy but I know that this idea will be well recieved.
