Make Your Own Watercolor Wrapping Paper
Visit any gift store and you can buy plenty of wrapping paper…but as Grandma will be the first to tell you, there’s really nothing like homemade. Teachers appreciate it, too, because by experimenting with paint and crayons and other decorative tools, kids are also doing science, art and small-motor muscle building that all lead to success at school.
What You Need:
- Plastic tablecover
- Plain tissue paper (not too thin) or newsprint
- White crayon
- 2 or more squirt bottles of liquid watercolor (available at art and craft stores)
