Christmas Find and Color

happy holidaysIt's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the bustling pages of this unique activity book. Kids can look forward to the coming holiday by spotting the hidden objects and characters in 20 joyfully chaotic pictures of Santa's workshop, the North Pole mailroom, a busy toy store, a Christmas castle, and other seasonal locales. After solving the puzzles (solutions appear at the end), children can color each page. Great idea for a stocking stuffer!
