This activity can be repeated many times, because toddlers love opening presents!

  1. Wrap a small toy in wrapping paper.
  2. Show the wrapped toy to your toddler and ask, "What do you think is inside?"
  3. Give the wrapped toy to your child so she can remove the paper.
  4. Then rewrap the toy as your child watches.
  5. Let her unwrap it again, and repeat the game until she tires of it.
