If you’re looking to entertain the kids this week in the lead up to Christmas, how about getting them busy wrapping your Christmas gifts with a bit of flair.
Below are 6 simple ideas for you to consider:
1. Christmas JOY
[Joy: a feeling of great pleasure and happiness!]
Doesn’t that sum up Christmas time? Why not spell it out with this easy idea. You will need a candy cane and O Y! You can either print out the letters, use stickers or get the kiddos to write it on!
2. Christmas Tree Hearts
3. Santa’s Beard
This is an easy one to print out, get the kids to cut around and then glue on some cotton wool balls! Free printable of Santa’s Beard Cut Out here.
4. Christmas Decorations
There are so many inexpensive Christmas decorations around now that it is a nice idea to add one to the wrapping. You can use the person’s initial or a simple bauble.
5. Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer
Then how the reindeer loved him,
As they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer,
You’ll go down in history.
This one couldn’t be easier. You just need to cut out some antlers from brown cardstock, glue on some googly eyes and a big red pom pom!
6. Dot Sticker Wreaths
I love this one. Get the kids to trace around the bottom of a small cup to make a circle on the paper. Then follow around the circle with the dot stickers. At the end glue on a small ribbon – voila!
So there you go, easy ways to keep the kids busy and for you to look like a wrapping rock star!
