Potato Print Wrapping Paper

Potato printing wrapping paper is a brilliant eco-friendly way to home make your own Christmas paper this year! Involve the children for a really fun activity together.

What you’ll need:

A few big potatoes (we find that two per child is a good start!)
A roll of brown paper (Text Book Centre)
Paints (Text Book Centre)

Using a small, sharp knife, cut out the shape you’d like on your potato. For inspo, start with a star, a Christmas tree, or an angel. Move to more complex designs as you build your experience!! Place the paint in a flat-ish container. Dip the potato into the paint tray, and then press it onto the brown paper. Continue until you have enough, and then allow to dry.
