Review: Christmas Paper Play

Get ready for the festive season with Christmas Paper Play. It's full of paper craft activities for you to colour, cut, glue, decorate, count, draw, fold, and heaps more.

This is one of those books that is intended to be disassembled as it is used, though it does seem a bit of a shame to do so because it's so appealing in its book format. However, that’s the only way to use it, so get stuck in!

Activities include: Christmas decorations, an Advent calendar, finger puppets, stencils, paper folding (the bobbing robin looks kind of fun), letters to Santa, join the dots, and various games (have a go at the Tangram Challenge or Skater Skittles for starters).

With over 100 pages of creativity inside, you could easily spend several weeks or more working your way through everything Christmas Paper Play has to offer. "All you need are pencils, crayons, glue and scissors."
