We've recently featured a number of great books from Scholastic Canada...and it's no doubt that the first thing that comes to our mind when we think about Scholastic is - BOOKS! Books are fabulous things to own and our kids love them. But sometimes we need some books that are for more than just reading, and that's where the KLUTZ activity books come into play. These books (ok...well, some of them are definitely more like activities or games than they are books! ;) ), are SO very fun. We received a few of them to play with and explore...and the success rate for the KLUTZ books has been 100% so far in our home! :) One of the items we received was a Klutz Build-a-Book. We chose one for that we could make about Dad. Together my kids and I created a one-of-a-kind book for Daddy that will be presented to him as his Christmas gift from the kids this year. We had so much fun creating it! The kit contains everything you need (and plus some!) to make a colorful, fun and unique book about Dad. There are instructions, some inspiring ideas, lots of fun foam shapes, letters, googly eyes, and papers with all sorts of designs. The pages in the book are mostly blank, and are meant for you to fill with your own creations. I am sure that this little book will be treasured by Dad for years to come. It is a perfect gift for kids to make for their Dad...great for Christmas, birthdays, or just to show Dad how much you love him! There are also several other versions of the Build-a-Books.
Secondly, we tried out something that most little girls love...and have owned and spent hours playing with at some point in their lives - paper dolls! Scholastic Canada sent us another book from the Klutz line - The Fabulous Book of Paper Dolls.
These aren't just any paper dolls though! You'll find paper people, but with tab-free clothing. The clothes for these dolls simply press-on and peel-off with special adhesive dots. There are six reversible paper dolls, three sweet paper babies and even a few paper pets. Of course, there are loads of reversible clothes, shoes and even hairstyles. Yep, this book has you covered when it comes to the world of paper dolls! This is an ideal book to help get rid of some of the boredom that comes along with school breaks...or it's also just the thing to do during a quiet evening at home, or on any of those rainy (or cold & snowy!) days.
Check out the other Klutz Activity books...you'll find that there is a LOT of fun to be had with Klutz!
Scholastic Canada is giving TWO readers a set of both of the books mentioned above! (each winner will receive: The Fabulous Book of Paper Dolls & Build-a-Book). In order to get one entry, let us know which of the Klutz books you loved the most over at Scholastic Canada.
