Homemade Gift Wrap


This is a good activity for Christmas or any time of the year. Not only is it environmentally sound, but homemade gift wrap is far more economical and personal than commercially bought wrap, and your child will love to make it, too.

 
Materials
  • Brown paper bags, butcher paper, or large sheets of paper
  • Rubber stamps
  • Ink pads

Directions

  1. Cut open brown paper bags, or use butcher paper or large sheets of other paper.
  2. Using rubber stamps and ink pads in a variety of colors, your child can decorate the paper according to his personal taste.
  3. The colors and rubber stamps can be varied according to the season or occasion.
