Happiness is pulling all the giftwrap paper off the roll

When my grandson started pulling some of last year’s gift wrap paper off of a roll, I saw how fascinated he was and how much fun he was having.  Rather than stop him I allowed him to continue and grabbed my camera instead.

For about a half of an hour he enjoyed moving it around, hiding under it, and walking on top of it.   It required no special sounds, no batteries. and he certainly needed no help.  He found the prize inside — the paper core.   That will be his favorite toy for a couple of days.

  1. I remember many years ago, my son about the same age abandoning his toys to play with the boxes that they had arrived in. Why do we destroy those simple pleasures and inquisitive natures with xboxes, batteries and rules?

  2. I agree Cordlia. It is amazing to watch them explore new things and make their own adjustments – like pushing things around the house that don’t have wheels on them.

  3. This is quite awesome. I hope when I get a son or so to snap cool pics like this and show him, like look how silly you look…too cute. kids are wonderful
