I know some people reuse wrapping paper for gifts, but I don’t think it looks very nice. I hate throwing stuff out though so I decided to upcycle my wrapping paper this year for kids artwork. I folded it up neatly to store, then when G wants to draw I tape it to our kitchen table and let him go for it.
I found water colors weren’t as great on the wrapping paper, but I think normal paints, markers and crayons would work great. Oh and the foam brush seemed like a better idea than it was… haha. Duh.
