Kid's Party Gift Wrap Idea: Toy Trucks

Published October 01, 2014

have-fun-with-gift-givingNow that the kids are back to school there may be a few birthday celebrations in the works.

It’s always nice when the kids meet new friends and are able to celebrate a special day together.

Here is a cute idea for a boy’s birthday present. You can mix it up by using coloured paper, and white chalk or paint if you wish. Have some fun with changing it up a bit.

For the young girl’s gift-wrap idea, look for colour co-ordinated spa supplies.

Toy Truck Gift Wrap


  • Black construction paper
  • Plain, brown wrapping paper (available at dollar stores and post offices)
  • White/yellow chalk or acrylic paint
  • Tape and scissors
  • Miniature toy trucks (available at dollar stores)
  • Glue gun


Wrap your gift in the plain brown paper and set aside.

Cut a piece of black construction paper twothree inches in width and long enough to wrap around the gift.

Using your chalk or acrylic paint, make road lines down the centre of the black construction paper.

Glue the toy truck to the gift with your glue gun.

Mason Jar Spa

I saw this idea at a party recently and thought it was worth sharing. A large mason jar can be purchased at craft and grocery stores. Simply fill it with spa products and tie off with a pretty ribbon.

Try to keep the colour theme consistent for this gift idea. All pink or purple makes a nice presentation.


  • One large mason jar
  • One small nail file
  • One small set of nail clippers
  • One-two small bottles of nail polish
  • One small tube of hand cream


Place all items inside the mason jar and tie a ribbon around the lid. Attach a small name card to the ribbon.
