I SPY: It's a Wrap

Dec 12, 2014

Have you started wrapping your gifts?  I've held off as long as I can secretly hoping for a snow day so my kids can make the wrapping paper.  Not in my luck!  But last year we did it and it made a GREAT snow day activity.  Entertained them for well over an hour.  WOO HOO!

Can you believe I'm wishing to be snowed in?  Purely only to get my wrapping paper made.  How SELFISH!  HA.  Oh well I have the supplies stored in the closet for a future snow day.  I'm sure we're in for one too many snow days come the next three months.  One is nice but DREADING more then that!  But we're prepared.  For one at least!  If it happens after the Christmas holidays then they'll be making either Valentines day or birthday wrapping paper.

You want to stock up on supplies too?  All you need is:

1. A roll of solid white, brown kraft, or black paper.
2. Rubber Stamps and ink pad
3. Sharpie colored pens.  For black paper use Sharpie metallic gold, silver and white pens.

Don't have kids but want to also make your own wrapping?  Then have a go at one of these many great ideas on my Pinterest page .  I was so inspired to get the kids to do thumb and foot prints, and attach pom poms as Reindeers noses as shown on my Pinterest page.  But with no school/ snow days in our forecast I don't know when we will have time in the next week.  If an hour happens to free up we will be jumping on that project!  Ahhh...So much to do, so little time.  There's always next year!
