we needed to wrap a present for a fellow 2 year old a couple of weeks ago and i realised i had absolutely no wrapping paper. i did, however, have a toddler who needed to be kept busy for 15 minutes and a huge roll of kraft paper. i cut a big piece off, taped it to side of a storage unit and let her go to town with the crayons and markers. fun and effective. i would warn against doing this against a wall or furniture that you don't want marked up though or else tape an even bigger piece of paper underneath.
