Tie-Dyed Wrapping Paper
We all want our gifts to stand out and be noticed over the holidays, so we often use special and expensive wrapping paper and ribbon. But every year we generate almost 5 million tons waste comprised of wrapping paper and shopping bags!
This activity can be used to create beautiful and useful homemade gift wrapping while showing your child how to help the planet by using recycled paper. Here's how to get started:
What You Need:
- Tissue paper (used)
- Edible food coloring
- Clothesline and clothes pins to dry the paper
- Newspapers to lay under the paper to catch any drips while drying
