When it comes to making your own wrapping paper there's nothing more special than using regular paintings that the children have already made. Add some ribbon or other personal touches and they stand out as unique as well as festive and are always a hit with family members.
I've put together a collection of quick yet creative ideas from around the web that you can do with the children before Christmas arrives.
Fun Ideas to Create Your Own Wrapping Paper for Presents
I love this environmentally friendly option from Mother Natured where they used newspaper instead of 'new' paper. A great way to help children get excited about recycling!

Stamped Gift Wrap
There's no need to go out and buy fancy Christmas stamps for these ideas when you can use these simple materials from around the house instead.

DIY Gift Bags
Having the children make gift bags is a nice way to send home the Christmas gifts that they have made. These ideas are inexpensive and look like a lot of fun to make.
