One way for us to live a little (!) greener, is for us to combine our kids crafts with something practical. The kids love nothing more than drawing and printing on TONS of paper.. so these easy DIY wrapping paper ideas were a no brainer for us.. This week’s wrapping paper idea is perfect for preschoolers and young children: we had a go with Cookie Cutters (such a prefect classic printing craft for younger kids). (Keep reading and you can win some nifty Scotch Products).
Materials: roll of white or brown paper (ideally already made from recycled materials), paint and cookie cutters
We use 3 different sized cutters and one for each colour (to avoid a brown smudge at the end.
This paper needs to made ahead of wrapping and then let dry… Check out our DIY Wrapping paper video – which shows you how we made the paper, but also how the wonderful people from Scotch helped us wrap our presents. I am a total hand band dispenser convert!:
