Homemade Gift Wrap

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Preschooler's Busy Book

Homemade gift wrap is an economical and environmentally sound art project.

This is a good activity for Christmas or any time of the year. Not only is it environmentally sound, but homemade gift wrap is far more economical and personal than commercially bought wrap, and your child will love to make it, too.
