Christmas is now behind us, but that doesn't mean the gift giving ends. Gifts are wrapped and given all year long. Here is a way to add some fun to your gift giving.
This gift wrapping idea comes from my favorite memory of Christmas last year...
You remember last Christmas? You, know... normal Christmas, when we still gathered together as a family.
Two of our grandsons, Zack and Jack, were each getting a sled from us as one of their gifts.
The sleds were large and I didn't really want to wrap two of them. Plus...once one was opened the other child would instantly know that he got the same thing.
I came up with a plan to make the opening of these sleds more interesting and a whole lot more fun!
I put both sleds into one box, wrapped it, and placed a tag on it.
But the tag had no name on it.
When we arrived at our daughter's house on Christmas Eve with all our gifts, the kids were all immediately drawn to the largest gift.
They were all very confused by the tag and wanted to know WHOSE gift it was.
I told them they would just have to wait and see.
After the kids opened all their gifts, I told Zack that we had one more gift for him. He was very excited...
until he opened it and found another wrapped gift inside tagged for Jack.
Jack was extremely excited...
until he opened it and found yet another gift inside tagged for Zack.
The gifts alternated between Zack and Jack until the very last tiny box....it was tagged for both of them.
Inside the last tiny box they found a tag matching the one on the big mystery gift...quickly realizing that the big mystery gift was theirs.
They were so excited...and even more so when they opened it together and found their sleds inside.
