Craft and Activity Books are a subset of American Girl books and products that focus on creating (such as cooking or drawing) activity/puzzles, or other actions that are beyond reading the stories.
Since almost the start of the line, American Girl has offered craft and activity books and continue to do so. Quite a few activity books focus on the Historical Characters; however, there are quite a few that focus on My American Girl or generic crafts and activities. These are aimed towards the older audience, with some adult supervision.
