Make and Play Christmas Book – Hands-On Holiday Fun! #Giveaway

I just adore the Make and Play Christmas Book. It is so much fun for my kids to make the fun Christmas decorations and display them throughout the house.

This innovative new activity book includes ten press-out pieces to play and decorate with. The simple die-cut shapes, including Santa, a reindeer, and an angel, are easy to press out and slot together. The book also includes lots of activities, songs, and recipes to help celebrate Christmas!

This is a really nice book to give to any child and it gives them something to do throughout the season to prepare for Christmas Day.

We think this  book is so fun we have added it to Mommy Ramblings’ 2017 Holiday Gift Guide.


Candlewick Press is sponsoring a giveaway on Mommy Ramblings. One lucky blog reader will win their own hardcover copy of Make and Play Christmas Book! Thank you to Candlewick Press for the review book and for sponsoring this amazing giveaway on Mommy Ramblings!!! Open to US residents.

You may remember the fireplace tabletop decoration and multi-car train I showed you in the past.  This year I decided to get an ornament with all our names we can hang on the tree and went with the Personalized Fireplace Family Christmas Ornament with Stockings & Candles.  It arrived fast and with great communication.  The ornament is finely crafted and beautifully personalized with our names and the year as well as Merry Christmas on  the hearth.

We are kicking off the start of Mommy Ramblings’ 2013 Holiday Gift Guide Posts with Ornaments With Love!  Ornaments with Love is a family run company that has been in the retail gift business for over 50 years.  This great company has so many great styles of ornaments and tabletop decorations for the holidays that can be personalized.

These unique ornaments make great gifts and will become treasured keepsakes that will evoke great memories each season when they are unboxed and displayed.  As a mom of many, I really like that they have ornaments that go beyond 2.5 children and even included pets. This year we ordered a festive, Christmas Train decoration with a car that was adorned for each family member with their name.  The detail and quality on the ornament is superb and my little ones were so excited when it arrived.  They were busy finding everyone’s car and had such fun seeing there was a train car for everyone.  The extensive ornament selection will let you find the perfect ornament for anyone, check out some of the available styles below and to see them all visit the website.
