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.

  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. =)
