Teaching the kids to occupy themselves is probably one of the best things that I did when they were younger. There are just times when you need a little bit of peace and quiet. Being able to set the kids at the table with some activity books and crayons while I enjoy 5 minutes of silence with a cup of coffee is amazing.

The traditional paper and crayons work well but sometimes kids need a little bit of direction or inspiration. When that happens, I find that activity books really help a lot. Activity books can be educational or simply creative. I love the ones that end up being educational without letting the kids know it . If you’re looking for some Christmas themed fun, Christmas 2000 Stickers is a fun sticker activity book your child will definitely enjoy.
Put on your hat, coat and mittens and get ready for some frosty fun at the North Pole! There are festive doodles, icy puzzles, merry mazes and much more. Then take your pick from 2000 stickers to complete the scenes or to decorate your own festive cards, letters and drawings.
This activity book is absolutely adorable and is intended for children that are ages 4 and up. The drawings are bright and colorful and will definitely keep your child’s attention and there are so many stickers to choose from!
If you’re purchasing for a slightly older child, a teenager or even an adult who enjoys being creative, I recommend that you take a look at Draw Your World. It has over 150 original ideas for self expression. Each page has a beautiful background and a creative drawing prompt to get you started. The background may be a white ski slope on the side of a mountain with the creative drawing prompt of “Draw a skiier.” Or it may be a bit more open ended and have a cupcake with the drawing prompt of “Draw a wish.’
Either way, you will have hours of creative fun with this book that has over 200 pages of illustrations and free drawing pages.
When you’re planning on how to keep the kids busy this Christmas, don’t wait till the last minute. Pick up these two books for them to enjoy.
