DD (4 in 2 weeks sob!) will be getting her first proper bike.
Seeing as she will be with ExP I'd like her to come home to it set up.

How is the best way of wrapping? Chucking a Christmas table cloth over it a la the play kitchen she got last year?
Wrapping it round and round in paper and sticking a giant now on it? could be loads of fun for DP and I

All suggestions welcome, thanks!

Be environmentally friendly & wrap with a xmas table cloth or duvet cover!

I didn't wrap the bikes, just tied big bows around the handle bars.

Tablecloths it is! Will attach a giant now for good measure.

I have bought bike wraps before now, even the 99p sell them. Have you got any long curtains as you can put a bike behind them

Curtains are to window sill but that's a great idea! I think I'll go with the Christmas table cloths for now and keep an eye out for bike wraps in poundland.
Thanks smile

Wrap a tiny small bike?
Or something for it eg helmet, lock, lights etc.
Wrap a shed/garage key?
Put bike in a huge box?

Oooh wrapping the helmet is a top shout! I didn't think of that at all. I can wrap the helmet and wheel the bike out to her once she works it out.

We did a string attached to the bike with clues ..
