I really dislike wrapping paper with all the unnecessary paper that's only seen for a few minutes then crumpled up and thrown into the garbage. I know that you can recycle the paper here, but still. What a waste! I usually buy the decorative bags then reuse them over and over again until they've had enough. But since I had a large item to wrap, I doubt there are present bags big enough. How about just a bow? Hmmm...maybe so. How about making something from what we have at home? Yes!!! So I thought...what could I use at home to personalize it while at the same time make a fun activity for my little man? All we needed was:
- newspaper (preferably without any negative news)
- children's paint
- stickers (if you want)
- a bow
- a child who loves to paint!
