After this, I will do a page about the angels, and then one about the fall. Then I can get into regular salvation history.
from the Catechism of the Catholic ChurchA couple of overviews of the page:
As an old saying (att St Augustine) put it, the New Testament lies hidden in the Old and the Old Testament is unveiled in the New.
Can you see the Catechism questions? I put them in printable form here, They originally came from EWTN.
On the top right is a squash book, something I had never tried before.
Take a look on Jimmie's Squidoo page for instructions.
I got the template from Heart of Wisdom's free Genesis lapbook (which also contains instructions)
On the cover I used this picture from Fr Gilmour's Bible History.
I can't seem to find a template for this one: however, I basically cut out a T-shape so the top and bottom flaps fold over the base and then the question flap folds over all of them.
Here are the insides of a couple more catechism flaps. I used a three-part fold for the bottom one, and a simple fold-over for the top one.
The tree was simply a cut-out from an old scrapbooking set that a friend gave me. I thought the page needed some color.
I did a lot of pasting for this one, but it is fun work.
Aidan has obviously been watching, because last night he said he wanted to make a book, and he collected all his Mario Kart printouts from the last several months, and hole-punched some cardstock, and glued all the pictures in. He now has TWO books, one with coloring pages of various cars and one with the pasted pictures of Mario Kart. I will have to take pictures and post sometime, because he is extremely proud of having made TWO BOOKS.
