My older daughter made her first scribbling when she was just over 11 months old. Since the time she picked up her first pencil and a piece of paper her love for coloring, scribbling, painting and drawing started. She hasn’t become a child artist, she just enjoys what she does and I don’t push her to perfection – she’ll get there herself.
However, in over 2 years we’ve accumulated so much paper of different sizes and shapes that at some point I didn’t know what to do with it. I felt bad as I had to get rid of most of her early drawings (though I took pictures of them) when we were moving. At the new place we have a corner where we display her work. Pretty soon it was filled up as well!
Then, once we were getting ready to go to a birthday party and I realized we had no wrapping paper. While I was searching for it, I found a whole folder of my daughter’s paintings and after thinking about it and consulting with my 3 year old, we put together a lovely wrapping for the present. We sellotaped 4 large sheets of paper, wrapped the present in it, painted some lines along the parts where the papers connected and put a ribbon.
Thank you for reading my blog. I hope you enjoy this wrapping presents idea!
