Cars & Stars: Make Your Own Wrapping Paper on Tuesday Tots #linky

There were over 150 amazing activities for kids under 5 shared on the Tuesday Tots link-up last week, making it quite difficult for me to choose posts to feature for this week!!  

After browsing through all the interesting posts about spiders, bats, pumpkins, Montessori, science, and so much more, I was really drawn to two posts featuring do-it-yourself wrapping paper.  I think it was the artsy simplicity of the designs that drew me in, and I absolutely *LOVE* them!  

These designs would be great for wrapping presents for birthdays or anytime you want to surprise someone with a gift!

At our house, we’ve turned the often-requested art activity “Car Painting” into wrapping paper for birthday parties on several occasions!  It isn’t nearly as polished looking as the two beautiful designs above, but it is a good use for the huge pieces of paper my two go through doing this fun, sensory, process-art play!
