Posted by Santa Claus on December 28th, 2011

We put the sleigh away today.  And just in time!  A huge snow storm blew into the North Pole.  The snow piled high on the roof.  It even blocked half the windows.  We could barely open the doors through the drifts of snow!

Would you like to hear more about the snowstorm?

It looked like we’d be staying inside.  The were not happy about that news!  They had finished working on the toys for the year.  They wanted to have fun before starting on next year’s toys in January.  The little were done with school for a few weeks, too.  They really wanted to get out and play!

By noon the elves were as GRUMPY as !  They were angry about being cooped up inside.  They argued with each other over everything!

and I decided to do something.  The fighting had to stop!  We set up a scavenger hunt.  We created clues about places and things inside.  The clues led each team of elves around the workshops, sleeping quarters, and even my house.  As they solved one clue they found another clue to follow.

In no time the North Pole was filled with laughing.  The elves worked together to solve the riddles and clues.  Then the final clue led them to a giant plate of Christmas cookies and mugs of hot chocolate and marshmallows.  The elves snacked and chatted about the game.  They forgot all about being stuck inside.

Merry Christmas!
