DYI wrapping paper is a great project for when it is still warm enough to paint outside. It keeps your kids busy and gets some Christmas preparation out of the way. Bonus: you also get to save money!
1. Unroll some packing paper, easel paper, or any other inexpensive plain paper you can find.
2. Fill paper plates with red and green paint; give your child sponges, toilet paper tubes, brushes, or simply their hands and feet and let them go crazy!
3. Rinse away the mess with the hose and a little soap.
Tada! You now have gorgeous, home-made Christmas wrapping paper and happy children too!
