Have you ever heard of an Easter bonnet contest? The hats I like best have Easter eggs on them! Mmmm! Yummy chocolate eggs!
The elves had a fun idea today. They decided to have a Christmas bonnet contest! But the bonnets were not hats. They were reindeer antlers!
Mouse the Littlest Elf paired up with Vixen. As you know, Mouse the Littlest Elf is very good at knitting.
Kissy the Elf paired up with Blitzen. Kissy is very good at stitching.
Clumsy the Elf paired up with Rudolph. Do you know what Clumsy the Elf is very good at? Yes! Being clumsy!
Mouse the Littlest Elf thought knitted baubles would be good. She knitted two golden baubles. Then two silver baubles. Then two red baubles. She hung them on Vixen’s antlers. “That looks bauble-tastic!” she said.
Kissy the Elf thought a paper chain would be good. She stitched a fabric chain. The fabric was shiny and sparkly. Kissy the Elf hung the chain all over Blitzen’s antlers. “That looks chain-tastic!” she said.
Clumsy and Rudolph thought tinsel would be good. But they could not find any!
Rudolph put his head all the way into a big bag. “Only cobwebs in here,” he said.
Clumsy the Elf tried another bag. “Only glitter in this bag,” he said.
“A-CHOO!” The glitter made Clumsy the Elf sneeze. A big shower of glitter went all over Clumsy and Rudolph.
“Oh dear” said Clumsy the Elf. “We have no tinsel for your antlers and it’s time for the contest!”
Mrs Claus was the Christmas bonnet judge. She looked at Vixen. Then she looked at Blitzen. The reindeer held their antlers high with pride.
Then Mrs Claus looked at Rudolph. Rudolph looked at the floor. He knew his antlers were not decorated like the others.
“The winners are Rudolph and Clumsy the Elf,” said Mrs Claus. “For the most glittery Christmas cobweb bonnet!”
Everybody laughed. Rudolph’s antlers were covered with cobwebs. And the cobwebs were sparkling with glitter.
All the elves cheered. “Hooray for Clumsy the Elf!”
