Crafty Christmas Books For Kids

I love things that keep my kids unplugged especially this time of year. I want them to enjoy the holiday and spend time together which means it takes a conscious effort to make sure I have things around that keep them engaged and creative so they don't miss their electronics. These books are perfect for ages 3 and up.

This innovative new activity book includes ten press-out pieces to play and decorate with. The simple die-cut shapes, including Santa, a reindeer, and an angel, are easy to press out and slot together. The book also includes lots of activities, songs, and recipes to help celebrate Christmas!

How cute is this? They simply pop the ornaments out, put them together by sliding into the grooves and hang them on the tree either with a ribbon or an ornament hanger.



There are even fun activities like this age old, fun and pretty paper chain craft. Easy to do and kids love doing it.

Each of the twenty press-out Christmas decorations in this book can be easily slotted together to create cheerful hanging ornaments to adorn the Christmas tree or to add a festive touch to any space. Perfect for all ages, these gorgeous ornaments look elegant in white and gold, but even more glorious when colored.

illustrator’s comments:
Kate McLelland has illustrated several forthcoming books. She lives in Edinburgh with her husband and two children.

Aren't these ornaments adorable? They are so pretty. You can leave them as is or color them with markers, pencils or crayons.

Even though this says for 3 and up, I was able to do this with my 2 year old preschool class with a little help from me. They loved it and were very proud to show their parents when they came in the ones they had done hanging on our walls.
