Finished Binders

Well, I just got done making Leanna's weekly binder. I will start on Devin's next.  I used scrapbooking paper to decorate the binder and put her picture on the front.  I found the idea online when I searched for "decorating binders".  I might do a bit more later, but I think it's fine for now. Here is a picture.
Inside, they will both have a pencil case which they will carry their pencils, erasers, glue, or whatever else they may need for a school day. There are dividers for Monday through Friday so they know exactly what is expected of them each day. I figure doing things this way will make things extremely easy if we need to leave the house and take school with us. Everything will be all in one folder! 

I also completed Devin's binder. It is organized the same way as Leanna's, but his is decorated with Optimus Prime since he loves Transformers.


  1. Great job! Nice blog. You are welcome to follow my blog. Just click my picture. :)

  4. @Tammany - Thanks for checking out my blog. I have definitely had fun with it so far (it's only been 2 days). I'm hoping the excitement doesn't wear off because this is a wonderful way to keep track of our schooling and lots of other memories.

    I had fun making those binders. I mad my son's late last night. His face lit up when he saw it this morning. That makes it all so much more worth it! I will check out your blog.

  5. These binders are awesome! I think I will borrow your idea. We have some blank binders we bought last year for our new endeavor, which will include a Book of Centuries, a Collection of Copywork and Nature Study. I never even thought to dress them up.

    We also took a much needed, long, summer break. We will be starting around the 7th of September and I am thinking of making the first day a really big deal with special snacks and other fun things. Some cool binders would be a nice touch.

    I am a new follower. I found you on the workboxes loop. I haven't had any trouble getting your blog up. I just recently started a blog, too. It is so fun. Hop on over for a visit. =)
