Gift Wrap Pattern Sorting

I hate just recycling scrap wrapping paper after wrapping gifts. I’d much rather use it for crafts! I also like that this craft is a pretty fast one to set up and depending on your child’s abilities they can do this semi independently. I made lunch while my son did this , stopping only to take pictures and reign in his glue habit ( I would have used a glue stick if mine weren’t all dried up – must get some new ones).  One other thing I’d do differently – I’d use a larger piece of paper ( or smaller trees) so you could also make the squares larger, the small ones were at some times tricky to match up.

  1. Gather your materials. You will need a large sheet of construction paper multiple scrap pieces of wrapping paper,a marker, scissors and glue.
  2. Start by cutting your wrapping paper into 3 different trees .
  3. cut the rest into square ‘gifts”
  4. Glue the trees onto the paper.
  5. Invite your child to sort and match!
  6. Glue them on. Like I said a glue stick would be ideal but white glue worked.
