Yes. The person who opens the penultimate layer gets a sweet (or forfeit for teenagers playing ironically!) like everyone else does and the parcel continues round for the next go. They don't open two layers, if you see what I mean. That's the only way I've ever seen it done.
Hi there, I'm doing a pass the parcel for my son's birthday. Could you just remind me, does the final prize get wrapped in "special paper" so that whoever unwraps the penultimate layer gets to the special paper (with no little treat prize) and then gets to open that as well? Or will a child just open the final layer (without necessarily knowing it's the final layer) and end up with the prize in their hands? Inane silly question I know but DH and I can't agree which is the "right" way to do it! Ha ha!
