craft icon craft

This week, I thought I’d pull out an idea from the archives: it’s an imaginative way to get the littles involved in present prep.

Keeping kiddos busy while us parental-types are trying to finish last-minute, holiday prep can be a challenge. Here’s an easy activity that’s fun for toddlers to tweens, and results in something usable: “Snowball” Painted Gift Wrap!

What you need:

  • Any weight, White yarn
  • Scissors
  • Craft paint
  • Plain wrapping paper
  • Masking tape

Paint with Snowballs

  1. Lay out and tape down, plain wrapping paper.
  2. Place a small amount of a couple of colors of paint on a plate or foil, give your kiddo the snowballs and let ’em have at it — dip, pounce and swoosh all over the paper!
  3. Let dry.
