The ABCs of Christmas……. G is for GIFT WRAPPING

Have you started wrapping up your Christmas gifts yet? A great way to personalise your gifts is to make some bows out of all those sheets of scribbles that your little one has done and you can’t bear to throw away.

At How About Orange, there is a step by step tutorial on how to make bows out of a magazine. All you need to do is swap the magazine paper for your little one’s pieces of artwork and there you have it…. a lovely personalised bow. If you want to make them more Christmassy you can always set up the colouring activity first and give your little one festive colours to draw/ scribble with and maybe even some glue and glitter (can you tell I like a bit of sparkle in my house?!).
