Very few potatoes were harmed
When I heard on NPR that some wrapping paper is not recyclable and little of it actually gets recycled, we decided to make our own wrapping paper with a "Recycle me!" statement.
We got Eliza's Big Brothers Big Sisters buddy involved, and potato-printed up several sheets of the stuff.
All it took was butcher paper, poster paints, some sharp objects, and a few big potatoes. We are very pleased with the results! It kept us busy for the afternoon, no one got bored, and the mess wasn't even all that bad.
