Wrapping gifts from kids

Children's paintings as gift wrap

This year at Christmas, my infant daughter gave – with parental assistance, of course – her grandparents a little gift each (some nice candy).  To wrap the gifts, instead of using normal Christmas gift wrap, I took a different approach.

I used two of the colourful paintings she’d done at Playcentre as gift wrap, and tied the parcels with ribbon in matching colours.  The wrapped gifts looked so unusual and pretty and childish; they were real standouts – far, far better than if we’d taken the normal mainstream approach and used generic Christmas giftwrap.  Plus it’s a great way to re-use some of her (non keeper) paintings, of which we have dozens!
