Magic Marker Monday: Wrapping Paper

For the birthday party we attended on Saturday, we did something a little different. I wrapped the present in brown package paper, and then I let Timothy draw on it however he wanted. He really struggles with drawing (due to poor fine motor skills and some strange mental block), so I'm trying to find various ways to make it enjoyable. Plus, this personalizes the present a little and makes him think about the person he's giving the gift to. The blank space is where we had a stuffed animal attached.

And he wrote the To and From on the back!

My mom let me do this to all of our presents when I was growing up. I thought it was cool but she has now informed me it's because she didn't want to waste money on wrapping paper. It did create some great memories though!
