Potato-stamped wrapping paper
Potato-stamped wrapping paper

This is one for the big and little kids. You do the clean cutting; they do the messy stamping (although you'll have to do the cleaning up of the mess) Wrapping paper with the mark of the kids is a cute personal touch to family-member gifts and looks cute and cheerful mixed with an assortment of different wrapping papers under the tree.

You'll need:

  • Paints
  • A sponge, cut in half
  • A potato
  • A knife
  • A texta
  • Paper

Step one

Cut the potato in half.

Step two

Draw your desired shape on a piece of paper (it helps to trace around the potato face-down on the paper first so you can fit the shape exactly into the potato's circumference.

Step three

Cut around the shape from the top and a few millimeters down the potato too so the shape rises from the rest of the potato.

Step four

Place the sponges on a small plate and squirt paint onto each sponge. Let the kids loose with the stamps on a large sheet of butcher's paper or craft paper. Leave to dry then wrap!
