For 4yo. Preferably (but not necessarily) Christmassy, and a lovely object in itself before it's even been coloured in - ie a really skilled illustrator. If it's got stickers too, all the better.

TIA smile

The Usborne doodling & drawing books are great. They also do a Christmas wipe clean cards doodling pack.

I second the Depesche brand. Not sure if they have Chrissmassy ones though. But they are beautiful and perfect for 4 years+.

I got some from ELC when there was 20% off everything - they have a nice selection and are cheaper than Amazon.

IRL I know you can buy them in Fenwick's toy department and some large garden centres.

You can get the Very Hungry Caterpillar as a colouring book.

We have this one. It's beautiful. Or the anti colouring colouring book.

On Amazon there's an offer, 4 for £10 on crafty books.
linky
I recommend the usborne ones, they're fantastic, lovely pictures to colour and a honestly such a bargain at £2.50 each.
I've bought £20's worth already blush

Thanks so much for that choc - I'd missed that deal! DD actually mentioned that Santa always brings activity books and I hadn't been planning to get any this year, so now at that price I think I will grin tradition can be upheld!

Happy to have helped smile

My dd (a few years ago) had the flower fairies one it had the Christmas tree fairy and holly fairy in it plus lots of others.
They've still got some-I've just checked

zipetwhippet Fri 05-Dec-14 11:15:03

*amazon have still got some

KatherinaMinola Fri 05-Dec-14 22:44:38

Thanks so much for these GREAT suggestions.

chocolate, thanks thanks for that link - a couple of activity books I was looking at are on it - and they're £5.99 each bought singly! Such good value - I will be spending at least one set of £10!

The Birds to Colour book would particularly appeal to DD - it's a little old for her I think, but she would love it (loves nature).

I do love that Usborne Christmas doodling book too. Hmm... grin

Thanks everyone.

Thanks Beyond. That last fairytale one is lovely - too old for DD (in terms of colouring skills) but I think I am going to get it for a slightly older little friend - it's included in the 4 for £10 offer.

As is the Hungry Caterpillar colouring book - might get that too!

Really chuffed because there were three books I was specifically after listed in the offer chocolate linked to - I've ordered them all now.

Here's something Christmassy for you to colour in with your daughter

Mandala books are also good.
