Get the grandchildren involved to make this festive potato print wrapping paper
Star-shaped cookie cutter
Chopping board Sharp knife
Kitchen paper or dry cloth

1 Cut a potato in half, keeping the surface as flat as possible. Place a star-shaped cookie cutter on a chopping board with the cutting edge facing upwards and press the potato down on it. Cut away the excess potato using a sharp knife.
2. If the potato is wet, blot it on kitchen paper. Pour the paint into a saucer and dip the potato into the paint, making sure that the whole shape is covered.
3. To ensure the whole design prints properly, use a gentle rocking motion on the paper, moving the potato from side to side without lifting. Continue printing, then allow the design to dry.
