ToddlerScout is just 20 months but I'm always on the look out for new, creative ways to play & craft. I like the look of Nature Detectives and have used (in my teaching life) and continue to use The Mailbox and Making Friends for crafty ideas.
Jazmin, for lapbooking, what do you use as the base of the book? After looking at the site you linked I'm a bit confused -- is it just a file folder? TS likes matching his puzzle pieces to his puzzles (even if he can't aways get the piece in the hole) so thought a couple of lapbooks with matching would be better than puzzles for a long-haul flight at the end of the year.
I use a type of folder that is made of card and staple as many as i need to make the book. I also fold plain a4 card and stick it on some of the pages for extra space. Have a look at my group: https://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=164014243270
I am going to home educate my DS2 starting in september. I would be very interested in any information you have and are happy to share. I am still quite new to mumsnet and cant see how to private message you. xx
