From House to Home {Link Party}: Little House in the Big Woods

Little House in the Big Woods Lapbook and Projects

As I mentioned last week we started reading Little House in the Big Woods.
We were able to get to a few projects this week.  :)

Here are some pictures of our lapbook (you can find the printables free at Lapbook Lessons.)

There is a “Making Cheese” wheel and a felt pocket sewed up (to remember when Laura’s pocket ripped.

Here are some of the animals mentioned in the book.

And booklets about the food they stored for the winter, consequences for disobeying your parents, and things they did in each of the four seasons.

We also made a needle book, like Ma gave as a Christmas present in the book.  I’m going to use mine, as I’m on the costume committee again for my son’s musical and will need to bring my sewing supplies along for emergency mending during performances.

We made some homemade butter!  Delicious!

We had a hard time understanding the cheese-making process from reading about it in the book, so I found this wonderful YouTube video!

  1. It was a tradition in my family to make homemade butter each Thanksgiving and we loved it as kids. I’ve carried that tradition on into my family and my kids enjoy it now too. It looks like you guys had fun doing these “Little House in the Big Woods” activities. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Looks like a great week and a fun lesson! I love the needle book. That is really neat.
    Thanks so much for linking up at the Real Family Fun link party! Hope to see you next week.
