St. Therese Lap Book

by | Nov 8, 2010 | Lap Books, St. Therese | 9 comments

Last month my children enjoyed creating Lap Books in honor of St. Therese using the excellent St. Therese the Little Flower Faith Folder created by Holy Learning (previously Faith Folders for Catholics)!

In addition to the studying/completing the mini-books for our Lap Books we also enjoyed many books and activities in honor of St. Therese during the month of October.   You can find them (and other ideas!) listed in this post: Ideas for Celebrating the Feast of St. Therese.

Here are some pictures of Twinkle Toes’ completed Lap Book:

Twinkle Toes opted to use Scrapbook Paper & Stickers, Cut-out Letters and an Image of St. Therese for her front cover.  She also decided to create her lap book using a 2 folder layout.

  • “The Martin Family” Open-Up Book Set
  • “The Road to Carmel” Pick-a-Tab Book

My children love all of the paper dolls at Paper Dali, and Twinkle Toes decided to create a pocket on the back cover of her lap book for her St. Therese paper doll
She used a lovely coloring page for the outside of the Paper Doll pocket.

    Oh! Wow! I love all of your little additions! You guys did a fantastic job on it! I wish I had half of your creative thought. My poor kiddos have to put up with me, lol. Thanks for sharing it, Jessica.

    It came out really cute. We're half way done over here but had to take some time away from it. Alas, there just never seems to be the time in the day to do everything.
    The pictures of Twinkle Toes should inspire some little ones under my roof to get a move on…:)

    My second girl will LOVE the pink folder! I haven't made ours yet, but I love Twinkle Toes' idea of a pocket for the paper doll! Looks like she got her mommy's creative gene!;)

    Although I have no idea who St. Therese is, this is a beautiful lapbook for sure! I like all the illustrations and the delicate pink tone.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
