Welcome to another week of class at Santa’s School of Wonders! I am Professor Ellie Elf, a teacher at our elf school for elves. I admit, I must look funny today with paint all over my clothes! Getting messy is just part of the fun in our art class.
I hope you will join us elves today as we make a little mess creating our own wrapping paper. I get all goose-bumpy just thinking about seeing presents wrapped up and under a tree. When a present is decorated, it just seems nicer (and, it’s pretty exciting to take the wrapping off, too!).
Painting your own paper shows someone that you care and makes that person happy at the same time. After all, no present anywhere will have paper like yours. We elves loving making paper – it lets us turn our presents into our own works of art. For this project, you will probably need a little help from an adult. This can be such a messy project! Ask your adult helper to go over these instructions so that you can have all the supplies you need.
Here’s what to do to make your own paper:
There are many ways you can decorate your paper. If you do not have enough time to paint, you can decorate it just by drawing pictures, putting on your favorite stickers or by gluing decorations on after you’ve wrapped a present (I once glued buttons all over a gift – it was so pretty). I hope you enjoy making your own wrapping paper. I know that whoever gets your gift will probably want to save your paper – it’s like getting a present on a present!
Check in with our school next week to help us solve the mystery of the empty classroom!
