Are you looking for a fun, simple, inexpensive project/gift?!!! Check this out! We bought a stack of 10 canvases from Michaels for around $10- then added tape to create a shape/words. I have done this on large sheets of construction paper also, but we wanted to gift these to our aunts and uncles and grandparents.
Washi tape would probably be easier to use to create your design! I put similar and complementary color families together on plates (so that we wouldn't end up with brown!), and this was the result!
Let your imagination run wild and paint with your child! Enjoy!
