I always think it's nice for children to make their own wrapping paper and cards when going to a birthday party. This potato print wrapping paper is fun and easy to make. I buy a big roll of plain paper from IKEA and cut off the length I need, but you could use any large sheet of paper.

Ready for the messy part


Either apply paint to the potato shape by brush or just dip the potato into paint on a dish. As the potato can slide on the paper, it's best not to have too much paint on your potato shape
