Get wrapping!

So they’ve saved their pennies, been out shopping, bought a special present, decorated the wrapping paper and written the label. Now’s the time to let them wrap. Don’t let your inner control freak take over, oh no no no, let them do it, let them do it all!! Give them everything they need, scissors, ribbon, pens, sticky labels and let them go for it! Who cares if it’s it’s all loose and coming away at the corners, the kids will have done it themselves and that deserve lots of credit.  Christmas should be about giving and receiving so give the kids every opportunity to have a go at the ‘giving bit’ this Christmas. Wrapping sure is character building !! You should see my husband’s attempts!!!
