The holidays are coming, and the kids are bouncing off the walls with gingerbread-induced excitement. Calm over-stimulated bodies—and fill those extra winter break hours—with these 16 Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwaanza reads. Sharing a cozy classic like Raymond Briggs’s The Snowman or a hilarious new addition to the canon like How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Chanukah is just the way to make the holidays even more magical.
The LEGO Christmas Ornaments Book
Let’s see. The kids are home all day and need entertaining. The tree is up and needs decorating. Why not kill two birds with one stone? This clever book contains clear, step-by-step instructions for creating 15 LEGO ornaments using pieces you might already have in your collection (if you don’t mind occasionally improvising). Build seasonal classics like a wreath, snowflake, and present or modern additions like a camera, computer, and hamburger. (Free ebook with purchase of the traditional book.).
Available at amazon.com, $16.84.
