Miracles of Jesus Lapbook

Our next several weeks will be studies about the Miracles of Jesus. I decided to make this lapbook for the students to use as a review after the lessons.

I do have the title as Some of the Miracles of Jesus since we are not studying every miracle. Even though we are studying facts of the Life of Jesus such as Malchus, the Resurrection of Jesus and Jesus Returning to Heaven, I did not include them here. This lapbook will only be used for the Miracles that Jesus did for people to believe in His power, But, you can find more printables here if you want to add other miracles to your lapbook. This is only one of the great things about lapbooks... you make then your own by only using what printables you want to!
The first thing to do is print the parts you decide to use. Cut them out, fold them as needed. Turn your file folder right side out, so the writing inside will be on the back and not be seen. If you decide to fold your file folder, which I do for almost every lapbook (not file folder games), then looking at the photo above, I fold one side in half to the center fold line, and make sure it is straight along the bottom also. Then, fold the other side to meet in the center, keeping straight along the bottom again. Ignore the tab when folding, you want to use the main edge as your edge to line everything up.
It is usually easier to glue the cover now, while the folder is flat. I lay the cover on the top and make sure it is centered and straight, then I gently open one side while I hold the cover in place. If it moves, start over! But, once you have it ready, just draw a line down the edge and then cut the cover in half using the line. Glue both pieces of the cover to the correct side and the cover is ready!. Now, just make sure you have it right side up to attach the parts! ☺
 Next step is to lay out the parts onto the file folder. I use paper clips so I can turn pages, but still keep everything kinda where I want to put them. I try to put them in order as we will use them and not scattered all over. You can see in the photo above that I need to add a page to this lapbook for everything to fit. I use a piece of cardstock, which I laid along the fold. I usually add the clear packing tape to the edge of the cardstock, then hold the tape backward as I lay the cardstock where I want it, then lay the rest of the tape down. Just see what works best for you. I also add it to the back side so it is less noticeable. You can add pages wherever you like, and use any size. I have added them everywhere, but for class, it is easier for everyone if they are added like this and it looks like a book.
 Here is the finished inside of what I am using. You can add more pages and add as many miracles as you like. I layered some of the parts so everything fit like this. And, it is a fun, lift the flap style for the kids.
For the classroom, I have these made and ready to use. It is a lot of work, but maybe you could have a workday and let other people help you cut and glue, or a teen workday. They can get together for fun, fellowship and work! You can print everything you see in this lapbook here.

    1. Sorry, I do not have any photos for the Parable layout. I used these with Life of Jesus and not on their own. Thanks for your comments!
