Put some craftiness in Santa's sack this year! After completing this quick and easy craft project, your child will have a soft and colorful fleece blanket to cuddle up to. Take the 48 squares of fabric and knot them together—no sewing, cutting, or stuffing required. Your child can knot the material in any pattern she wishes, encouraging creativity and making the end product truly her own. In addition to promoting dexterity, crafts are great at lengthening attention spans. So, get knotting! (Alex, $26.99)
