The Lovereading4Kids comment

A wonderfully creative and inspiring resource for all the family! Paper angels, finger puppets, gift tags, iced-cookie gifts – these are just some of the 25 fun to make or do activities to occupy a family in the days before Christmas. The final thing to make is a wonderful nodding Santa which, like many of the others, can be pressed-out of the pages. Making and doing will be fun and the results will be a decorative delight for the rest of the festive season.
