I shared this idea over on My Organized Chaos, with a tutorial so you can see how I make mine and you can then make your own too. In a nutshell, I used pictures of Ebi-kun and super-imposed them onto fun backgrounds then he gets to write a story or report. They have been a lot of fun so far!
You can read the whole tutorial HERE.
Incidentally, if you are interested in the crafty & homeschool type of post and don't want to miss any. Then you should sign up for the newsletter, I send it out once a week with a round up of the posts plus I release the early bird dates and through the newsletter first and any specials that I have, you can sign up HERE (it's free!)
