This creative children’s gift wrapping idea will definitely set the scene on Christmas morning – just imagine the smiles on the kids’ faces when they spot their Christmas presents being carted off by mischievous mouse thieves (I know that my boys loved them).
Of course, it’s perfect for any gift wrapping occasion, especially children’s birthdays. But why not get a little creative and surprise the grown-ups – after all, Mom and Dad shouldn’t miss out on the fun? So start planning, there’s plenty of opportunities, you’ve Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Wedding anniversaries and even Valentine’s day to choose from!
Learn how to make this cool children’s gift wrapping idea for yourself
As far as gift wrapping crafts go, this has to be one of the easiest to make. There’s printable artwork for the mice and a template for the ‘tricky’ stand, but if that’s still too much effort, go for the ‘easy peasy’ stand made from a squashed toilet roll! You’ll find the download button underneath the instructions.
An even quicker cheat courtesy of Julie: simply prop the present on a small block of wood, and stick the mice around the side of the present – perfect if you don’t want to reuse the mice and you can’t see under the present.
1) Colour version of mice – just print and cut out.
2) Black and white mice – have fun colouring them in first.
3) Template for stand – print it out and trace around it.
4) Collectable instructions – stick them on the fridge!
