    This is interesting. I’ve been using File Folders with my younger ones, but this is a neat way to incorporate it with my 4th grader. Thank you!!! I’d love to see more samples and tutorials on this!!! <3

  2. Thank you! I’ve been wondering how to do this. I’d like to see an example of how to do a lap book using file folders too. My kids are 8 and 6 and 4 and I think that might be more their style for now.

  3. I love this version much better then the file folder one! Making the lapbook into a notebook is much easier to store and share for us.

  4. Wow – that looks like a lot of fun! Was there some sort of guide used to decide what components to add?

  5. I have a tutorial on my blog to show you how to make them the easy way with file folders. Allot of the websites give instructions that can be confusing. We lapbook ALLOT, so I kind of have putting them together down to a science. Once you get the hang of it they are quick to put together.

  6. Thank you for sharing this. I have been wanting to try lapbooking. Every place we look seems everyone loves this. You have beautifully presented this in a simple and informative way! I can’t wait to get started!

  7. wow. we just started on the lapbooks…we’re enjoying it but this seems easier to store.thanks

  8. We are just starting some lapbooking with my 6 and 7 year old. May get my 4 year old in when I know what I’m doing better.

    But, I love this concept. This way, we can keep all of our lapbooks in a binder and keep them all together.

  9. Thank you sooo much. I found the idea of lapbooking on Pintrest and found the ideas to be amazing. I had been looking for the foldables and couldn’t find them anywhere. Thank you for sharing your expertise and knowledge; as well as your templates.

  10. This is great! I like doing the file folders with my kids, but this is something to keep in mind as they grow older and I want them to record more information. Thanks!

  11. its give me an idea how to make my lapbook project thanks a lot. Godbless

  12. Thank you for the lapbook information using cardstock. What a great idea!

  13. we have been doing the ancient greece lapbooks but cant find the links that it gives. how do i go to the links?

  14. This is fabulous! I’ve looked all over, hoping to find the actual, “The Music Man” lapbook download pictured here. Is there such a thing. This was too good to be true!


  15. I love this! So much neater and tidier than some of the other ways I’ve seen lapbooks presented. I like the way you have it on cardstock and the way you explained each step that you go through in completing the book. Well done.


  1. […] Previously, my 14 year old daughter shared how she prefers to lapbook, attaching the lapbook components to cardstock and storing in a three ring binder.[…]

  2. […] and theatrical elements. You can see my teen assemble her Movie Lapbook for The Music Man HERE. Not into lapbooking? The lessons can stand on their own; just have children respond to what they […]
