My son has a couple of birthday parties coming up for his pre-school classmates so I have been on the lookout for some nice but inexpensive wrapping paper. I experienced sticker shock in Meijer last week when every roll of wrapping paper was $5 to $6. I would never pay that much for one roll so I decided to wait and see if I saw a good deal elsewhere or get really creative. My parents sent the boys a Radio Flyer wagon for Christmas and it was packed in a huge box with a lot of brown packing paper. I rolled the paper and kept it for future use in the garage.
I cut a big piece of paper and let my two year old color while I stenciled with some cake stencils. We added lots of scribbles and colorful swirls.
We made a card that looks like a crayon box and attached it to the front of an actual crayon box and taped it to the present. This was a lot of fun and we reused some of our packing paper. I think the present is pretty adorable too.
