- First, google image search their favourite character/tv show at the moment with the word colouring. For a girl I would suggest "Disney princess colouring". For a boy "Ben 10 colouring". Hundreds of colouring pages come up, ready to be printed off. This is much faster than looking up colouring pages through a regular Google search.
- Second, print out as many colouring pages as you want to give them. I think 10-20 would be enough, but if you want to give more it will all get used.
- Third, buy some crayons or coloured pencils (you could pick some up cheap at The $2 Shop). Be kind to this child's mother and steer clear of the felt pens. If you want to give paint, even watercolour, you may have to include an apron in your pack.
And viola! Ready to wrap.
If you want to dress this present up a bit more you could:
-go to a stationary/department store/The $2 Shop and get matching stickers and wrapping paper to go with your themed colouring pages
-include a list of fun websites that feature your chosen character/theme (you'll need to invest some time into checking which are good/rubbish that come up on your Google search)
-decoupage an image onto something fun like a glass, plate, bowl, clipboard or simply laminate it and then it could be coloured and wiped clean
-decoupage a colour image to an odd item in your kitchen that you won't miss to include another small gift that fits your theme.
