Wrap a present…

When you look at wrapping paper, what do you think? A brilliant way to hide a surprise? A pretty pattern? Well, did you know that wrapping paper is a big waste of paper and of trees? This should stop, and although we can’t stop it entirely, we can help by not buying or using it. But what do we do when we want to wrap a present?

What we can do is find stuff that we would just throw away and make a substitute for wrapping paper. We (me and my family) have made some of our own wrapping paper and used it. I will post a picture of it this weekend.

This is what you can do too!

I will organise a competition for ThePrettiestWrappedPresentWithNoWrappingPaper. Then it will be up to you to create! This is what you have to do:

  1. Create your wrapped present.
  2. Send a photo of it to me.
  3. Then I will consider your pictures and post the winner.

I had an English teacher here in France who is now a teacher in Scotland. Her class is doing a project on sustainability and they have very kindly got the competition underway. Here is a photo they sent of their creations. I will post more about their class and their efforts at the weekend, but in the meantime, great going guys!!!!!

  1. My Mum has made dozens of Christmas bags over many years for all the presents she sends. She gets great fabric, makes bags of many shapes and sizes, and then sends them from Canada! We keep them and reuse them every year.
