We use newspaper to wrap gifts and decided to make the paper a little more personal this year.
The layout- the plan was a circle of paper that would confine the girls to the painting area.
Using Paint and Clay Rollers we evaluated 3 different types of paint from Quality Classrooms. The red is non-washable- Yikes!
Rose was very excited and luckily still in old pajamas. I was predicting a messy adventure.
Pure joy and lovin’ the mess.
Daisy was a little more organized once she got into the rollering. Her first few attempts lost the pattern. She was enjoying the process of rolling paint.
A green smile and also a green bum, hence the prints on the floor.
Enjoying the paint and sound of newspaper moving under the roller.
The aftermath. I am letting it dry to test how well it washes out of clothing.
This paper we made using fingerprinting.
Newspaper printed paper – pretty and good for the environment.

What fun and good practice for using more expensive wrapping paper someday in the future! This is such a nice child-friendly way to teach how to wrap gifts. I think my husband needs some practice with newspaper, too! 🙂 Carolyn
Mine too Carolyn!!
They look like they are having a wonderful time!! What a great way to reuse newspaper and get the kids involved!
Yup lots of fun, for me too!
