We made the books interactive with movable models. The kids love these books!

The project took about two weeks from start to finish. We used products available from

  1. Hana, this is amazing! You have inspired a much-needed change in our homeschooling and I can gratefully report that my children are much happier and more co-operative now…making me happier in the end :). I have a Silhouette Cameo 3 and am wondering if you have shared your templates anywhere? Thank you for all that you do!
