Little hands will flourish, as Judy Press shows that creative expression, learning fun, and respect for others can be the themes of engaging Christmastime activities! Quick & easy sections provide simpler activities and crafts for younger children to do in shorter time periods. Activities & games range from making Stand-Up Fir trees to a Hands-Together garland, playing Countdown to Christmas games, creating Pop-up cards, Snowman wrapping paper, Jingle-bell wind chimes, and a wonderful festive Choo-Choo train!
"Excellent book for people working with just their own children,someone with a small group or a classroom teacher. The activities could be used with both younger or older children. The directions are very clear and the numerous colorful illustrations make the book very "friendly" to use. Many activities could used for Winter or non Christmas projects. The book contains many tips, games and cultural origins of the activities. My 7 year old son and I had a blast making projects from this book and I was able to use some of the ideas in my Art classes as well. I highly recommend this book."
