Get started with chanukah crafting by spending a little time making doodle wrapping paper! Last week I shared with you my idea for some all purpose doodled message wrapping paper, though truthfully that was an after thought after I created this DIY chanukah wrapping paper craft with my kids. You see we have a ton of blank newsprint paper hanging out at our house, so buying wrapping paper certainly seems like a huge waste, and for me just getting out some markers and doodling on a huge sheet of paper was very relaxing. I can't exactly say my kids felt the same way, for them the huge size was honestly a little tedious, but every child loves different things, so do give it a try.
The two kids (mine) that I could convince to partake in this craft both choose to draw centric dreidels, the results of which you can see here above, and below. So glad I have photos of their creations, as this paper will be used and tossed come Chanukah, yippee!
Next on the list, a little re-visit to our printed and stamped wrapping paper, (that we did four years ago!) and hopefully a step in the direction of getting serious about preparing for the upcoming holiday!
