The Toymaker's Christmas Review & Giveaway...

Christmas is just a few days away and if you are looking for something fun to do with the kids be sure and pick up The Toymaker's Christmas:  Paper Toys You Can Make Yourself by Marilyn Scott-Waters.  This book is a treasure, filled with beautiful paper crafts you can create with your child.  The real bonus?  No supplies are required...everything you need is included right in the book!

The Toymaker spreads Christmas joy with 11 paper toys to pop out, fold, glue together, and play with! With their beautiful, antique style, these toys are sure to enchant both children and adults. Leave St. Nick his milk and cookies in “Santa's Treat Box.” Decorate the Christmas tree with the four lovely “Little Angels.” Create a magical “Winter Wonderland,” complete with moving parts-like an ice skating penguin. And no Christmas would be complete without a handsome paper “Nutcracker,” with arms and a jaw that move. 





The suggested age range for this book is 9-12 but really this book is appropriate for any age.  The very young can create with an adult and even adults alone will enjoy these festive Christmas crafts that double as decorations.  The boys and I have had a blast creating these fun crafts and we will be saving them once this year is over to use again next year!  The quality of the paper is fantastic making the crafts durable enough to withstand a little "rough housing" that goes along with crafting with little ones.  Go out and grab this book today and spend the last few days of Christmas with the little ones you love, creating something beautiful.

I can't think of a holiday craft. We make goodies inside and snowmen outside. This past week I made play dough with the kids and that turned out great. My 1st graders teacher gave all the kids in the class a kit to make play dough and it used those flavor aid packets, so the dough smells yummy. I'll have to get the recipe from her cause it turned out so great. You keep heating it in the microwave until it's the right consistency. I guess I'd better figure out a craft to do with the kids today.
