Christmas activities for kidsWhat you will need:
Roll of butcher paper in color of choice (red, green, blue, white, silver and gold work nicely)
Paint (in variety of seasonal colors) and brushes
Sponges cut in holiday shapes such as stars, snowmen or wreaths (little hands and feet work well too as do store-bought stamps)
Glitter (optional)

What to do:
1. Roll out butcher paper and cut to length needed. Use books or other heavy item to hold ends down flat.
2. Stamp paper with paint-dipped sponges (or hands, feet or store-bought stamps) in an orderly pattern or at random. Lightly dust with glitter if preferred.
3. Let dry completely before wrapping gifts.
