Gift is one of many ways to show our kids how much we love them. There are myriad ideas about the right gifts for kids, either boy or girl, but today we would love to share wrapping ideas instead of gift ideas. If the wrapping of gifts for kids is attractive, kids will be more enthusiastic and curious about what’s inside.
So let us start with the simplest wrapping idea: the penguin gifts. Doesn’t matter the shape of the gift box, either rectangular, square, or spherical, penguin wrapping idea will make the gift looks more cute and awesome. First of all we need to prepare the papers and tools to create penguin wrapping.
Prepare matte paper in light grey color to wrap the gifts, peach colored matte paper to create the penguin snouts, white glossy paper for the faces of penguin, and black glossy paper for penguin’s eyes. Then get your scissor, glue, pen, and ruler ready. Once you get them gathered, wrap the entire gifts for kids using the light grey wrapping paper.
Then use your pen to draw circles on the white glossy paper to create penguin faces, adjust penguin faces’ size with the gifts’ size. Cut them carefully so you’ll get perfect sphere. Then draw smaller circles on black glossy papers, remember to adjust their size with penguin faces’ size. Cut those eyes then stick them on the faces using glue.
To create penguin snouts we need to make some rectangular prisms using peach colored matte paper. And then stick the snouts between penguin eyes but slightly below the eyes position. Now glue the penguin face on each gift for kids. If you want different animal wrapping for each kid, try more unique wrapping ideas below.

Easy Artistic Animal Gifts for Kids
Brown wrapping paper is the main material to prepare. The other things to prepare are black marker, colorful balloons, colorful pompoms, tape, and glue. Now wrap all gifts with brown wrapping paper. Then draw some standing elephants on some gifts using black marker. Use the balloons as elephants’ face. Draw eyes on each balloon, the long section of balloon will be elephant’s trunk.
Glue the balloon on brown wrapped gifts between elephant’s ears with the long section facing down. Once we’re done with the elephants, let’s move on to mice themed gifts. Materials for mice themed gift are same as the ones we use for elephant themed gifts, except the balloon. Replace balloons with pastel pink colored matte paper.

Glue the pink ribbon under the face of the mouse and two pink triangles on the top of the gift, above the mouse’s face. You can also draw cat, bear, and tiger on brown wrapped gifts.
