The Mothercraft: Snowball Painted Gift Wrap

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:
Snowballs (Small & large, white pompoms –learn how to make your own here!)
Craft paint
Plain wrapping paper
Masking tape

How to:

  • Lay out and tape down, plain wrapping paper.
  • 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!
  • Let dry. 

Happy holidays!
