Creative and fun activity books for kids

What are your favourite books for children with activities that they can do with minimal supervision? So far on the list, I have The Silver Spoon for Children (cooking), the Ed Emberley books (drawing), maybe Wreck This Journal or How to Be an Explorer of the World (random creative activities)?

Some of the kids on my Christmas list are aged 10-13. Given that they all seem to have enormous amounts of 'stuff' and parents who are very busy, I am trying to find books that have activities in them that the kids can more or less do themselves. Happy to purchase some additional items to go with the book if necessary.
Could be craft, writing, games, art, cooking - whatever!!
But it really does need to be something that requires minimal adult set-up and supervision, with adequate instructions.
