Making a Workbook Last

I like workbooks for my kids.
They are great for quiet places...
like church,
doctors offices,
school assemblies,
the car,
or even just at home during quiet time.

But with 5 kids I could fork out a LOT of money on workbooks
the way my kids go through them.

So I turned 1 book

into a neverending book of fun...



I just found a 3 ring binder

started ripping the pages out of my new workbook

and stuck them in sheet protectors

and voila!


Now we can use it again and again and again...


Just grab a dry erase marker 
(ours has an eraser on top which makes it nice)
and the kids can use it
then erase and
 pass it along to the next kid waiting!

Oh, great idea! As a frugal homeschooler, this would work to resell workbooks later to recoup some money for other curriculum! LOVE the idea! Nice for road trips too! Stoppin' by from TGIF!
