Kid Painted Gift Wrap
Kids love to make their own presents for others and create their own kid painted gift wrap. Hand painted gift bags are really fun to make and fabulous for wrapping too. It is like a two in one bonus project! You can use pretty much any bags but my favorite are kraft colored lunch bags that come in packs of 25 or 50 at the grocery store because they are super inexpensive. The cost of this project makes it a fabulous one to do with a group of kids either in a classroom or a club.
You will need the following supplies.
- OOLY Poster Paints
- Paint Brushes
- OOLY Smooth Hues
- Paper Sacks or Bags
- Blank Gift Tags (If Desired)
- Hole Punch
- Paper Towels and Water for Rinsing Brushes
Start by painting stripes with red paint on the bags and tags.
Add green, light green and red stripes going in different direction to create a plaid.
Use your finger to paint snowmen and reindeer. Once the paint is dry, you can add details with brushes and other colors of paint.
When the paint is completely dry, use a Smooth Hue marker to add details.
Put gifts in the bags. Use a hole puncher to put a hole in the top of the bag then tie the tags through the holes with ribbon. Ta Da!
Kid Painted Gift Tags
The paints are great for making gift tags to match the wrap too. This is my favorite one. Also, I love that is matches the wrap.
