Since he just turned two, handing him scissors, tape and delicate paper had disaster written all over it. So I had to think of a quick alternative… I decided to let him create his own wrapping paper for his grandparents!
I found some large sheets of thick, white paper and drew little stick figures of my son and daughter. Then I gave my son crayons and let him go to town! He had so much fun, and being an independent little boy, this was the perfect way for him to contribute!
I drew gift tags on the paper and wrote down our grandparents’ names – they look so colorful and fun! And most importantly, my little guy had a great time and learned a little bit about giving. (Plus, these were extremely low cost. We only used materials we had at home – no buying necessary!)
Once he was done coloring, we wrapped our presents. Now we have a beautiful stack of gifts!
I think they turned out great! I can’t wait for my little ones to give these to their grandparents!
