Homemade Wrapping Paper

Add a personal touch with handmade wrapping paper.

What you will need;

  • plain paper – we used A4 in the photo, but it’s much easier if you use A3 paper on a roll then you can cut it to the length needed.
  • 2 or 3 different coloured paints
  • various sponge shapes for printing

My daughter enjoyed dabbing the sponge into the different colours and making spots and a smiley face at first.

She extended her learning by making a heart shape, letters and numbers from spots. She also experimented with colour, mixing blue and red to make purple.

Once the paint was dry, the present was wrapped and finished with a beautiful ribbon.
