santahat The Christmas Paper Elf

This is a tradition we started a couple of years ago.
The first week of December, we take our four children to pick out wrapping paper. They each choose different rolls of paper; last year my oldest chose "A Christmas Story" paper, my second son chose Hot Wheels paper, my third son chose John Deere paper, and my daughter chose Frosty the Snowman paper. After the kids pick out their paper, they attach their Christmas lists to their rolls of paper with tape and put the paper and lists under the Christmas tree. During the night, the Wrapping Paper Elf comes and takes the wrapping paper and the Christmas lists to the North Pole to Santa Claus!
Come Christmas morning, all the kids have to do is look for the gifts wrapped in their own special paper; no need to read tags (and no need for Santa to write any ).
It has worked WONDERFULLY and the kids LOVE it!
