Create extra-special Christmas cards with a few supplies, including this wooden castle cutout from Michael's. The Knights Before Christmas, a picture book by Joan Holub and Scott Magoon.
Catpulting fun at Quail Ridge Bookstore. The gingerbread men went really far. So did the marshmallows!
Joan Holub, the author of more than 130 picture books and novels for children, including the Goddess Girl series and picture books such as "Zero the Hero," "Mighty Dads" and "Little Red Writing," will share her new book "The Knights Before Christmas," at 2 p.m., Saturday. It's best for ages 5 and up. I had the pleasure of meeting Joan over the weekend at Triangle Reads where I moderated the picture book panel. My six-year-old has either been read this book or read this book herself about a dozen times in the last 24 hours. It's a fun spin on "The Night Before Christmas!"
