Wrapping Presents with Toddlers

So, this year I have been trying to incorporate my 2 year old in as many Christmas activities as possible. Since decorating the tree and building/decorating the gingerbread house went well, I thought I would try wrapping presents. This one turned out to be more frustrating for both of us rather than a fun activity. She wanted to be part of every aspect of the wrapping experience, cutting, taping, folding, writing on tags and placing the tags on. I only wanted her to assist in taping and placing the tags on. Anyone who can avoid doing this activity with a 2 year old, should. I think I will try again next year when she is 3 years old.
