All kids try to sneak a look at their presents. Attempting to punish them for it is absurd. If you don't want it spoiled, it's your responsibility as a parent to hide it effectively.
Seriously. It's what kids do. I used to do it. All kids are going to try to find them, you can't say to a kid something like "hey, maybe I got you a Wii" about a month in advance and expect the kid to be able to wait around patiently.
