Christmas Crafts for Kids Review & Giveaway!!

Christmas Crafts for Kids by Beth Gordon from 123Homeschool4Me is a fabulous book with hundreds of Christmas craft and activity ideas for kids!

Christmas Crafts for Kids is 167 pages long and packed with tons of ways to make the Christmas season a little more memorable with your children.  Beth has included personal traditions, activities, classic crafts, keepsakes, recipes, and more.  Children 2-10 years old will love it!  My kids enjoyed making these reindeer puppets (from the Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer themed day)...and playing with them for the rest of the day!

What makes Christmas Crafts for Kids even more unique is that it is organized around children's Christmas books!  Each day in December before Christmas is assigned a book, and then activities that tie into that book's theme are presented.  Beth knows that families are busy in December, and she stresses that no one should feel obligated to do every activity, but instead choose what your children will most enjoy.  And finally, she includes an alternate book for each day too...just in case the primary book isn't available (or you don't like it!).   For example, the Rudolf day includes two suggested reindeer books, a recipe for reindeer cookies, a recipe for reindeer pancakes, the Rudolf Puppet instructions, Rudolf crown instructions, instructions for a DIY Rudolf Hot Cocoa mix gift, Reindeer Family Art project, and Rudolf Hand & Foot Art projects.  And that's just one day!  Some days have fewer activity suggestions and some days have more.  One page includes over two dozen gifts that children can make for others, and another page includes a similarly sized list of Christmas tradition ideas that your family might enjoy.

Christmas Crafts for Kids is perfect for last minute crafting ideas or a long-term planning resource.  I thoroughly enjoyed looking through it as I prepared this review...and my 6-year old daughter couldn't help "helping" me plan with it!

Here's the exciting part for you:  Beth is generously giving away one {FREE} e-book copy to one of my readers next week!  Just use the handy Rafflecopter form below!  International entries are welcome! This giveaway ends December 11th at midnight!  Good luck!
