still disappointed Sep 12, 2005
it's been over a month since my order and I still haven't received it, although when I placed the order the website said it was "in stock" and would ship within the next 2 days.
Great Ideas! Oct 14, 2003
Lots of creative ideas that teach children about other cultures. Very innovative, not the same old things you see in other books!

Wonderful Holiday Ideas!!! Dec 10, 2001
I run a day home and with Christmas coming up it was wonderful to find so many ideas for the little ones to do. First, we made the Chocolate Kisses for them to give their parents for Chrismas.
A BIG one for the dads and a smaller one for the moms. :-) Actually, I already had some white chocolate at home, so I bought some bags of butterscotch chips and mixed them in and got caramel chocolate, so that's what the dads got and the moms got the real chocolate. We wrapped them in cellophane and put them in gift bags so they look really cute. I also put little strips of paper in the tops saying 'dad, you're the best' and 'we love you, mom.' Needless to say, one of my daughters saw them and wanted to know where hers is. by the way, she's married with children.
We have also made the applesauce/cinnamon ornaments this week, so at the moment they are drying and next week we will decorate them with glitter and so on. The kids had a ball kneeding the dough in the plastic bag. They sat in a circle and passed it around so everyone could have a squeeze. To tell the truth I was a little skeptical that it would turn into dough, but 'presto', it worked.
Tommorow I am going on a hunt for the red and white Christmas candy to make the candy wreaths. as crazy as it sounds, so far I have not been able to find it in Calgary, so I am hoping to find some of it somewhere so that we can make the wreaths next week.
Oh, and I nearly forgot, I also tried the Ice Cream, but that was for me. :-) I have just ordered your 2 previous books and can't wait to get them. Thanks again for the lovely ideas. Margaret in Calgary, Alberta.
Best Holiday Book Ever!! Nov 17, 2001
My Children and I have spent countless fun filled hours creating many of the fresh, new, and creative projects in this book. Our favortes include the Swap Gunk and Goblin Make-up, these two projects along with the monster hand punch made our halloween party a hit! We are just now starting to create the pepermint wreaths and bird cookies for Christmas. All of the projects we made were quick, easy and inexpensive to create. This book is a hands down winner and is leaps and bounds better than any other Holiday craft book I have seen!
