I like to use our own photos in our lapbooks, but printing can get expensive. While printing pictures from my SD card using the kiosk at my local CVS pharmacy I discovered that you can print mini-photos which consist of 9 pictures on a 4X6" sheet for only 29 cents! That's about 3 cents per picture. Yes, they're pretty small but they're still amazingy clear and colorful and while they're tough to see online they work fine in person. And it makes a lapbook much more personalized which my boys love.

I actually made this lapbook for the boys as a homeschool "gift" from Mommie ; ) It's kind of crafty cutsey because I used scrapbook stuff for the decorations but I did actually research the origins of the holiday and learned a lot myself about the Celts and Romans and how they shaped what we now celebrate as Halloween.

We went to our local planetarium and saw a presentation about Saturn and the Cassini-Huygens probe. We made 3-D models (which you can see in a picture on the front of the lapbook) of the probe and collected a lot of cool information.
