Although, March break was gone before I received the DK Canada LEGO Play Book 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.

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.

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!

  4. I have not purchased any from DK yet but have been tempted. They have a great selection and I may have just have to splurge and order a few!

  5. I have purchased DK books, but I don’t know if they are DK Canada books. I especially love our sturdy board books for learning about animals/colours/numbers/etc.

  6. I haven’t purchased a DK book before. I hadn’t even heard of them. That being said, THIS book looks amazing and I know my little guy would build EVERY item in it. He has a ton of lego. Not even exaggerating…we had to build a door system to be able to put his huge lego bins under his bed for easy access. 🙂
