I love brown packaging paper. I use it for wrapping Christmas presents, decorating for parties, crafts, and more. Over the summer the children were getting a little
crazy, loud, out of control, bored. I pulled out the brown paper packaging roll, taped it to the floor, grab some crayons, gathered a few cars and characters, and told them to make a village. Hello playtime. We colored, and laughed, and played, and the best part the clean up was minimal...unless you count the toddler who 100% of the time prefer to color on herself instead of the paper.
note: I get my brown paper from the local Dollar Tree.
