First up is the 3D Jungle Animals Masks book which Harlow received. This is of course a craft book and allows you to make 4 cool animal masks which are 3D. There's a choice between a chimp, elephant, parrot or tiger and since Harlow's a massive bird fan we chose to make the parrot first. The book comes in a little protective sleeve and you simply pull it out to start creating your mask. Inside the book there are a few pages of step by step instructions on how to create the mask of your choice and of course pop out cardboard piece which can be stuck together to form the 3D mask.
Harlow is only 2 years old so definitely needed my help for this craft however I'm sure a child of 6+ would probably be able to do this with minimal help. You'll need to make sure you have good glue for sticking all the masks pieces together and some elastic so the mask can be worn but apart from that you're good to go.
Next up is the Extreme Machines book which Logan received. He absolutely loved it! It's basically a book packed full of awesome photos and facts about the world's extreme machines. There's things in there such as; spy planes, road trains, ice vehicles, roller coasters, jet packs and much more. If your child is a mad facts fan then this is the book for them. Logan loves his facts so he couldn't put this book down. It's even better that it's about machines as well as he really likes things with wheels.
The Extreme Machines book is a sturdy hard back and priced at £14.99. It has 160 different coloured photographs inside and is well worth a purchase for your vehicle mad kid.
Both of these lovely books won't be published until 13th July 2017 so that gives you plenty of time to add them to your child's wish list.
