Homemade Christmas - wrapping paper

I want to get Charlie involved in all the Christmas preparations so a couple of weeks ago we started off with homemade wrapping paper. I had a roll of brown paper left from last year, bought some gold and red glitter paint and dug out the foam Christmas shapes. We made lots of different pieces of paper, green Christmas trees, yellow angels, blue snowmen, bells and bright red Santa Claus.
We also added the finishing glitter touches to the heart wrapping paper we made with the help of cookie cutters and C's best friend a few weeks ago.
When the presents are wrapped I'll use glitter glue pens to add features onto the shapes at the top of the parcel.
C loves getting the paints out and this was a fun way to start talking about Christmas with him.
