Best 12 Free Foldables & Lapbooks Resources for Your Homeschool

Foldables and lapbooks are a fun way to spice up your homeschool from time to time.  They definitely spark imagination and creativity in your children’s learning. And you can adapt them to almost any subject.  Super Hero loves to create lapbooks once in a while, and so do I. When we need a little color in our routine, we pick up a lapbook.  Foldables and lapbooks stimulate Super Hero’s enthusiasm, and allow us to create lovely keepsakes at the same time. It’s really quite fun!
