What you need: Presents, cotton batting and white tissue paper.

How to play: In this twist on gift wrapping, place each present inside cotton batting and wrap white tissue paper around each, making "snowballs."

What are the rules: Pile all of these snowballs under the tree, and when the time comes for distributing them, the mother, or another adult, tosses them, one at a time, to the children, who are eagerly standing at distance. As the children catch the gifts, they step out of line to leave room for others until all have received one. Then all the balls are opened and the presents disclosed.

How to win: Everyone is a winner in this game.
