As the holiday season sparkles with anticipation, finding ways to involve your little ones in the festivities becomes a delightful quest. I want to share an enjoyable and meaningful activity that I did with my son when he was in preschool. This fun activity adds a personal touch to gift-giving—turning our children's drawings into wrapping paper.
Crafting Whimsical Wonders: A Magical Journey Awaits
Children love to create, and I don't know about you- but we always had tons of artwork around the house that my son made. With his permission (when it comes to artwork, no matter what it looks like to you- maybe a bunch of scribbles? Always treat it and the artist with respect! Ask if you can display it and ask if you can keep it for wrapping paper), I would save artwork throughout the year for everyday wrapping, and at Christmas time we would create masterpieces in Christmas colors as pictured here:
This is not only cost-effective (yay for that!), but saves a tree, and making this wrapping paper has many other benefits, including these:
Fine Motor Development: Engaging in coloring and cutting activities refines fine motor skills, contributing to enhanced coordination and control
🌟🎄 Artistic Expression: This festive craft encourages our little ones to unleash their creativity, expressing themselves through unique and personalized designs.
🌟🎄 Family Bonding: The shared experience of crafting strengthens familial ties, creating lasting memories of joyous collaboration.
🌟🎄 Gift of Giving: Children actively participate in the gift-giving experience, instilling a sense of generosity and pride.
🌟🎄 Memorable Keepsake: The resulting wrapping paper becomes more than just a festive covering—it transforms into a cherished keepsake, a tangible memory of holiday creativity.
