Make and Play: Christmas


Make and Play: Christmas. Joey Chou, illustrator. 2017. Candlewick. 26 pages. [Source: Review copy]

Premise/plot: Make & Play Christmas is an interactive book for families with young children. It features 20 press-out pieces to create your own tree ornaments. The first seventeen pages are the press-out pieces. (You'll definitely need a way to keep these together; there is no built in storage system.) Ornaments include a reindeer, a Santa, a tree, an angel, a snowman, several balls, two ginger cookies, a bell, lots of snowflakes, and a candy cane or two.

So what else does the book include? Suggestions for activities for the whole family.

Craft suggestions:
  • Paper Chains
  • Gingerbread Cookie Recipe
  • Reindeer Prints
  •  Snowball Truffles Recipe
  • Make your own wrapping paper

Song suggestions:
  •  Jingle Bells
  • Deck the Halls
  •  We Wish You A Merry Christmas
My thoughts: I definitely like this one. I would recommend it for families, but not as a Christmas gift.
