Homemade Wrapping Paper

This year my kids and I had a blast making our wrapping paper. We also made a HUGE mess. Fortunately we were outside for this messy adventure. We rolled out two large rolls of brown paper (IKEA). Then put paint on a cookie sheet. The kids walked in the paint, then on the paper. SO fun! I love the finished product and it was a great way to make a lot fast.( Yes, we are outside our apartment buidling on the bike path!)

 Oh, and we got our hands into it as well!
