“100 Christmas things to make and do”
Some great ideas in here, particularly for younger children to have a go at, like making their own xmas paper or simple but very eye-catching xmas decorations. My 5-year-old and I have had great fun using the collage camel idea to create camels for the nativity play and we are looking forward to making fudge, snowflake fairies and paper snowflakes! Great fun for these cold, dark evenings on the run up to xmas :)

“I fell in love straight away with the colourful pages and clear step by step instructions...the variety of activities is fantastic. ”
