I have some gift wrap ideas. When families have young children at home, sometimes just buying the gift is expensive enough. Then you have to buy gift wrap too! I would buy a large roll of freezer paper and let my son decorate each piece I cut off before I actually wrapped it around the gift.
Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles thought it was so neat to get a piece of his artwork around their gift and he was pleased to be a part of the gift. This also worked well on gifts to take to birthday parties he had been invited to.
One word of caution: If your child gets very particular about his or her artwork, you may have to let them do the decorating after the gift is wrapped so you don't have to end up cutting part of it or folding part underneath when wrapping it.
Brown paper also comes on a roll and is fairly cheap. (05/19/2009)
