Title: Poppy’s Secret Christmas

Poppy’s Secret Christmas is an excellent interactive, and fun storybook for young children. There are plenty of activities inside for the reader to do throughout the festive season, plus a beautiful, seasonal story, featuring popular children’s characters: Poppy and her best friend Honey. We see them; on Christmas Eve, visiting friends and making special Christmas gifts for their Mum and Dad (who are busy in preparation of a Christmas party which the household is hosting). Not only are we entertained by Poppy and Honey’s attempts to make gifts – many of the recipes and insructions on how to make the featured items are also included in the volume – plus a beautiful silk bag. A gorgeous book, and it would make a perfect Christmas Present for each and every little princess out there!

Christmas-based Entertainment: Snowflakes

Now, these aren’t your usual ‘cut-out’ paper snow flakes. These are proper 3D decorations and a ‘must-have’ for your home at Christmastime. Very simple to make and effective.

Complete six of these flakes and staple them together at the centre and hang the completed snowflake in your window!
