Investigating materials: Pass the Parcel

Hallowe'en is a great time to play traditional games like "pass the parcel".
We played this game today, with a slight twist.
We brought a bit of science and maths into our game.
With each layer of the parcel the students had to describe the material covering the parcel....what is the covering? is it hard/soft? is it absorbent/waterproof? is it opaque/see through? is it dull/shiny?
When the music stopped we could unwrap a layer, keep the prize and describe the maths shape we many sides? how many corners? its colour? the name of the shape?
We really like this game, but we ran out of time.  Teacher has said that we can play this game again after the break!
