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.
