How do you do lapbooks with two kids?

I'm using the Time Traveler's kit on Early 19c America from Home School in the Woods, btw.
Any words of wisdom for lapbooking novice would be greatly appreciated!

With my older child, I give her a piece of the lapbook and the guide and have her do all the writing. Although I do the cutting and folding. She does lay out her lapbooks as well.
With my younger child, I do all the work and just go over things with her.
Most of the time, I let my children pick out what they want to do a lapbook on and make it an enrichment subject but once in a while we will do a companion lapbook to whatever we are studying.

Homeschoolshare.com and homeschoolhelper.com have lots of lapbook templates. We are doing homeschool in the woods lapbooks right now. Those turn out beautiful, but I have to say h.helper & h.share provided more learning opportunities by making the girls research the answers instead of hs in the woods, where the answers are already printed.
Anyway, we don't do a ton of lapbooks, maybe 2-3 a year. They are fun to look back on. Don't stress out over them. You can make them as simple or as complicated as you want.
