What to do? What to do? There is this big mess of beautiful left over wrapping paper from the holiday gifts or the little one's birthday. Such a shame to throw it all in the garbage. There has to be something fun to do with it first. Well, you could ball it all up and have a pretty paper "snowball" fight with it. Better yet, have the little ones make big piles and jump around in it like newly raked fall leaves. No, doesn't suit your fancy huh? Guess some crafts might be a little more up your alley. Keep in mind though that running the paper through a shredder or cutting strips of it by hand can make some great colorful wrapping paper confetti though. One fun trick my little one had a great time with last year was taping strips of wrapping paper to a hat to make a great colorful wrapping paper wig. You could also use strips to do some pretty wrapping paper weaving by overlapping them in sheets. With a little energy, they might like making wrapping paper crafts better than playing with their gifts
Do you want to dress up like a beautiful princess? Here is a beautiful princess cone cap that will do the trick. You will need heavy wrapping paper 11" x 12", Scotch tape or staples, and a hankie or scarf. Roll paper into cone, open end of which fits head. Fasten it with tape or staples. Attach hankie or scarf to top of hat with pin or paste.
