a gift for my triathalon-loving brotherStarting to feel the holiday panic? If you are like me, the gifts have been bought, but have yet to be wrapped. Obviously you can’t make the kids wrap their own presents; but they can wrap everyone else’s. As long as they are wrapping gifts up, why not let them personalize them too by drawing or painting on the paper. You can buy butcher paper for around 15 cents per foot at the craft store. You can decorate the paper then wrap your gifts (roll out a long strip and let them go nuts), or you can wrap the package up then setting your little elf to work on it. Imagine how much grandma and grandpa will love a package decorated by their favorite artist. (And it will eat up a little of that hyper-Christmas-awaiting-school-free time on your kid’s hands!)
