This was a rather simple lapbook for us. I purchased the kit from HOAC, and while I really liked the components, they were just too old for ds (6). We will try it again if we come back around to this book. On the first day of our week, we went to a quilt museum with co-op; there we saw a crazy quilt (which reminded us of the quilt the Quiltmaker makes for the King in the Quiltmaker’s Gift). So, Elijah took scraps of paper and made a paper crazy quilt for the front of his lapbook (I helped with the fibers).
