1764 – Kaya :: An American Girl Lap Book
~ Front Cover ~
For the cover the girls each choose an image from the American Girl Website’s Wallpaper selections, cropping and pasting it to the front of their covers. They then cut out the year “1764” with the help of my Cricut to add to the front cover as well.

I also created a Recipe Pocket with recipe cards from this study:

~ Kaya’s Dried Fruit and Nut Mix ~
The girls had so much fun making the recipes!
I also ordered a used Kaya Paper Doll book from Amazon that was supposedly in “like new” condition, but when it arrived, it was missing the Kaya and Tatlo Dolls that were suppose to be on the first page. Thankfully I was able to find a picture of them online and printed them out so we could use all the outfits, etc. (I actually ended up printing out two, so that the girls could each have their own.) The girls then created a pocket on the Back of their Lap Books to store their dolls.
The girls have moved on and are now studying Colonial Life, with the help of Felicity! For some reason, the girls are absolutely loving History this year! 😉
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.
