The rules of this game are simple, and it is a fun thing to do with family. First we drew numbers from a hat, one number for each person. Next we went in numerical order from least to greatest. We went around three times. Each person had the chance to either choose a wrapped present or choose an unwrapped present from somebody who has already opened a gift. Everyone had an exciting/funny gift as they went home that night. I know I’m still enjoying my play-dough!
