Wrapped Packages

Take a small gift ( book, puzzle, paint set, model) that is age appropriate for the group.  Wrap the gift in several layers of paper (about 7 layers). 

Have the children sit in a circle and the adult will play music and when it stops, whoever is holding the package gets to unwrap a layer of paper.  The person unwrapping the last layer gets to keep that gift.  ypu might want small gifts to give to the others, depending on the age of the children.
