A while ago, my daughter was invited to a birthday party. We got the gift, but forgot the wrapping paper. This gave me an idea.
We pulled out some butcher paper (you can get it at Wal-Mart) and my daughter was able to make her very own wrapping paper.
She LOVED making pictures for her friend and it made the present THAT much more personal.
It really turned into a fun project that we will continue to do every time there is a gift to wrap.
