If you’ve never used lapbooks and aren’t sure exactly what in the world I might be talking about, picture file folders folded, put together, and used as a scrapbook of sorts where kids make mini books and illustrations of what they’re learning. I love lapbooking. Most of my kids at least tolerate it and some really enjoy it. All of them appreciate taking a break from the normal routines to do something a little more laid back and hands-on. 
So if Christmas anticipation is making you- and the kids- crazy and you want something a little different to fill in the days before you take your Christmas break, try a Christmas-themed lapbook. Here are some great lapbooks you can download, print, and begin using right away. Some of these are free and some aren’t. I’ve tried to note which are which.
