With the excitement of Christmas settled, we have been slowly shifting back to our normal routine. We are currently alternating our time between playing with new toys/games and crafting. I had saved all of our wrapping paper scraps for smaller gifts and found that I still had a large stack when gift wrapping was complete. I wanted to find a few ways to use our leftover gift wrapping supplies while also creating an engaging activity for the boys. This wrapping paper board perfect for kids of all ages
- Wrapping paper scraps
- Cardboard box or kraft paper
- Tape or glue
- Bows, gift tags, stickers, etc.
To start, lay your cardboard box or kraft paper flat. Begin cutting wrapping paper scraps into squares and rectangles then tape or glue pieces to the board. If your child is old enough to use scissors, this is a great activity to practice cutting skills and build fine motor skills.
Allow your child to decorate with an assortment of wrapping supplies. You can also add markers/crayons for children who like to draw and color
