Recycled Wrapping Paper Activity: New Years Party Blowers
Don’t you hate seeing all the beautiful wrapping paper you so carefully wrapped all of your gifts with go to waste? Check out this neat way to recycle scrap wrapping paper!
New Years Party Blowers
- Wrapping Paper
Use the cutting guidelines on the back of the wrapping paper to cut several 2″ x 6″ strips.
Fold the long edges of the paper until they meet in the center. Apply a strip of scotch tape to cover the entire seam. Fold one short end up about 1/8″ and tape to secure and seal.
Cut a straw in half. Insert it about 1″ into the open end of the paper tube. Fold the paper around the straw and secure with tape. The tape needs to hold the paper to the straw, but also create a seal.
Roll the end of the paper tube tightly towards the straw. This step is ideal for little helpers…put them to work rolling up the blowers.
And your finished product should look something like this…
We here at Southern Maryland Parents hope you have a wonderful holiday and New Year! Stay tuned for more holiday recycling activities and crafts!
