Have you ever needed wrapping paper and you don't have it for the right occasion? Why not get your kids engaged and creating while making their own wrapping paper? Then, you can use it to wrap a special gift for grandparents, friends, or a teacher.
Here are 3 different ways your child can create their own wrapping paper:
Creative Art Wrapping Paper
This is my FAVORITE tip for creating kid made wrapping paper! Flip over any wrapping paper you have on hand to the white side. Let your child draw or scribble or trace using paint pens or permanent markers. Viola! Let it dry and wrap your gift.
Stamped Wrapping Paper
Use blocks, cookie cutters, or your hands to stamp a sheet of wrapping paper. You can use a large piece of construction paper, butcher paper, or the back of wrapping paper. Put washable paint onto a plate. Dip what you are using to stamp with into the paint and directly onto the paper. Let your creation dry and then wrap your gifts!
Spray Painted Wrapping Paper
In a spray bottle mix equal parts of washable paint and water. Shake. Cover your paper with different items. We used magnetic letters that were easy to wash afterwards. You could also cut shapes from cardboard and set those on your paper. Spray your paper. I love that your child is building hand and finger strength while doing this activity! Let your paper dry and wrap your gift.
Your child will love preparing the wrapping paper for their special gift with one of these three techniques.
