Holidays are a wonderful time to make things – especially when a Christmas Book is the inspiration!
I can’t lie and say we don’t read Christmas books in June, we do… but they do get an over-reading in November and December when the leaves turn orange and yellow and the air is fresh!!
Children’s crafts that are based on or inspired by books are always fantastic! The crafts bring the story alive and the book gives extra meaning to the craft idea!
We hosted a book + craft series this year and it was a huge success – so we decided to do the same for Christmas – using Christmas books as inspiration!
30 Wonderful Bloggers from all over the world have joined forces to bring you a wonderful series that combines Christmas Books with Christmas Crafts for Children!
Here are 30 wonderful ideas! Happy Holidays Everyone!
