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.
They decorated the little house in the woods.
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!
