The Lovereading4Kids comment

Get ready to take control of the most important time of the year - and create your OWN Christmas!

It’s time to take control of your festive destiny, says the introduction to this activity book with a difference. That sets the tone for what follows – bright, really attractive pages full of instructions on how to make Christmas decorations and games, from the conventional (paper chains) to the out-of-the-ordinary (catapult powered sleigh launcher). Good news for parents is that most projects use only scissors, glue, pens and pencils, though there are instructions on turning left-over Christmas dinner into paint! The book is livened up even further by the inclusion of Christmas jokes and quirky information boxes, how and why crackers bang for example, and will provide hours of fun. Andrea Reece
