A brilliant way to get your children involved in the festivities and more fun than just buying decorations – this is a book we will use for many Christmas times to come.
Christmas fun has several ideas for things young children could make to keep the anticipation of the Great Day under control. What’s more, as you would expect from this publisher, they are all easy to achieve and don’t require a fortune spent on materials. An excellent book to enjoy with a child of three-plus on a wet pre-Christmas afternoon.

The cardboard page tabs, which are on a ring binder, allow the book to lie flat open (top tip for craft and cooking). The 11 simple yet imaginative craft activities use everyday materials, and the book is an ideal resource for church, school or home.

Lancashire Evening Post
As a pre-school, we found this book very useful and so will mums and dads at home too. This is a lovely book with lots of fun creative ideas for you to enjoy with children of many ages.
This is Kids' Stuff
There are lots of ideas here for drawing and painting, fingerprinting and cutting and sticking.
Despite the few glitter related accidents these activities have gone down a treat. So, if you are struggling to keep little fingers entertained this Christmas I definitely recommend investing in a copy of Usborne’s ‘Christmas Fun’. Just a word of caution, big fingers get sucked in too!
