This is the hilarious moment a toddler tries and struggles to keep wrapping paper flat on the ground for Christmas presents.

While John Thueringer watches on in Snohomish, Washington, USA, his nephew Cody lays out some festive gift decoration and walks to one end.

Having laid the corners down, the almost two-year-old walks away, only for the paper to curl back up on December 18.

After several more attempts, Cody quickly gets frustrated and in a final attempt to flatten the wrapping paper, he trips and falls flat on his face.

John said: “It was really cute that Cody wanted to help.

“But when he biffed it we died with laughter.

“I came over to wrap resents and my little nephew wanted to help, it didn’t work so well as the paper ended up getting the better of him.

“He’s a tough little guy and got back up and kept going at it.
