African Animals and Lizards Lapbook

Nope…these two subjects have NOTHING to do with one another.  I’m just trying to save time by combining two posts into one.  I seem to be making that a habit lately.  Hmmm…wonder if it could be because I feel like I’m absolutely swamped and have no free time?!!?  Are the holidays over yet?  Oh…sorry, they haven’t even started have they?  Geez…oh well.  No time to rest, then!
Anyway, Brian and Caleb spent some time on Saturday painting some African animals.  These animals were bought back in August when we visited our friends, The Neil Family.  Yep…it’s taken us that long to sit down to paint them.  Oh well, it was still fun and worth the wait.  But – the company needs to do a better job of providing ample paint.  There are two completed animals, one half-painted animal, and one albino animal (meaning the paint ran out). 

Here are two of my favorite boys painting.IMG_4479 Caleb’s just too focused…look at the tongue.  What is it about the tongue?  Why does it have to be out when you’re concentrating?  LOL!IMG_4481
For the past two weeks, Caleb has been working on a Lizards Lapbook.  He thoroughly enjoyed himself, and I think he even learned a bit.  We always enjoy taking a break from our normal science curriculum, to do some “hands-on” fun with lapbooking.  Here are the pictures from this latest project…Enjoy!

So, that’s a little bit of what’s been going on at the Childress household.  The next lapbook we do will cover some Christmas topics, so look for that one coming before the holidays are over!

You've been working on some really fun projects. I would agree that paint in kits in never given in the proper amounts!

My son did the tongue too!
