Although, March break was gone before I received the DK Canada LEGO Playbook and The Big Book of Crafts & Activities, we still have so many other opportunities to make good use of them.  They sure will come in handy next March and through out the year.

Ok, every kid I know loves LEGO!  Actually, even the adults get right in there when the LEGO bucket comeS out.  The DK LEGO Play Book is a wonderful companion to any LEGO fan.  With 200 pages of colourful LEGO creations (that’s over 500 build and play ideas from LEGO Fans), you and your family can turn a ho-hum day into a LEGO Play marathon!

From enchanted forests to rampaging robots, LEGO Play Book is jam-packed with inspiring models and ideas from LEGO fan builders.  Learn tips and tricks to help your building techniques ex:  to give your sea serpent a scaly body, use 2×2 slope bricks).  If you’re looking for a quick build, they have that covered too!    You may feel like taking on your friends in a fun LEGO Challenge.  Each page also comes with fun facts and bit of a narrative to enjoy.  DH was completely entranced with the LEGO Play Book!  He can now spend even more time playing with LEGO!  What a great way to spend some family time together!   Where will your imagination take you?

The BIG BOOK of Crafts & Activities

DK Books

We are a DK Canada Books family.  Just so many wonderful titles to choose from.  The BIG BOOK of Crafts & Activities is a favorite of mine and my little ones.  We both have a creative side and with the help of this book, we can pretty much find what we need to suit the occasion.  Over 120 pages packed with crafts, recipes, games and activities for kids who want to get their craft on!  Great DIY ideas for organizing your child’s bedroom to making homemade pizza!  Around here, everyone loves to make their own pizza.  Complete with recipe, instructions and topping ideas.

Dk Books

Each page  has colourful illustrations of the finished product, along with step-by-step instructions and a helpful hint area.  These activities are great for the older child who is fine managing on their own.  Or make it a fun day on a rainy day and help your little one bake up a loaf of  homemade bread!

You can order LEGO Play Book or The BIG BOOK of Crafts & Activities (or any of their other awesome titles) here! You can still get 30% off selected books!
