Our Camel Lapbook from




Our ECC Co-op Artist Impressionist study:  Paul Klee

The kids used oil pastels on watercolor paper.  They then went over the oils with watercolor paint.  The last step, to make the picture have a 3D look, was to add construction paper layers … as in an underwater scene.

Please link of and share your week using MFW!  Next week’s link will be hosted by Kattie @ 2 Ladybugs and a Lizard blog.

Enjoy your week,



  1. That camel lapbook looks pretty neat. I found a really cool density experiment similar to what you guys did on pinterest, but we haven't had time to try it yet :(

  2. Those pics look GREAT! The more i see of MFW ECC in action, the more excited i am to use it next year :)

  3. I always love to see what you are doing. You are a couple weeks ahead of us so I love to stop in for some inspiration. Thanks for sharing all of your ideas!
