New and Fun Christmas Activity Books from Usborne Books & More

I know Christmas is right around the corner, but it will be soon.  Usborne's Christmas titles are always such a huge hit that they sell out quickly so I wanted to highlight them now for you so you can get them ordered before we run out! Below is the list of my and my children's top 5 Christmas books.

1.  Usborne's Advent Calendar to Color is our favorite new title this year!  It's going to be so fun for the kids to color their scene in each day.  By Christmas their Calendar will be all done and will be a family  heirloom to treasure each Christmas hereafter.  For only $7.99, it's a steal! I would have loved one of these when I was a kid.  

2.  Usborne's Christmas Stencil Cards are so much fun!  You can creat just about any Christmas craft item with these.  They help in making home made Christmas cards, Christmas drawing scenes, and craft that you need Christmas items for.  They also help in teaching kids how to draw these figures for the holiday season.  

One thing my kids love to do with  these is to stencil each of them on different colored paper, decorate them, and cut them out.  Then they punch a hole at the top and string curling ribbon through them to make a garland.  It's so cute to hang on the fireplace, tree or anywhere else.  We have LOTS of these garlands around our house.

3.  Christmas Sticker Dolly Dressing is one of the funnest of the Sticker Dolly Dressing series according to my daughter.  She loves to do a new book each year.  This is definitely one of Usborne's most popular Christmas activity book!   One of the reasons why she likes it so much is because it has festive scenes with holiday events and also the outdoor scenes when the dolls in the snow and ice skating.  We are in the south where it doesn't snow, so she loves to dress them with all the extra winter clothes.  I gave my daughter her first one on Thanksgiving to kick off the Christmas season!  Makes for a wonderful Christmas gift for girls to give their friends too.

4.  Illustrated Stories for Christmas is a beautiful book for your independent reader.  It's a collection of classic Christmas stories such as A Christmas Carol, The Elf and the Toymaker and Twas the Night Before Christmas.  Beautifully illustrated, this is another Usborne Christmas book that will become a family heirloom.

5.  That's Not My Reindeer is one of Usborne's Christmas Touchy Feely books.  Each page has a different texture on it, so babies and toddler LOVE to touch each page.  They are so excited when they find their reindeer at the end of the book.  Other Christmas That's Not My's in this series include That's Not My Santa, Penguin, Angel, and Donkey.
