Christmas Olympics – Day 1 – Trampoline Team Event

Today was Day One of the Christmas Olympics at the North Pole!  We were having so much fun I almost forgot to write in my blog!  HHHOL!

Would you like to read about what happened today?

The big event today was the Trampoline Team contest.

and are a trampoline pair. Pairs have to follow the same routine. They have to jump together. They have to flip together. They have to twist together. And they have to match each other all of the time. It is like a bouncy dance routine!

Clumsy and Rudolph tried a new routine today. Trampoline rules say you can bounce in lots of ways. You can bounce from your feet or your bottom! You can bounce onto your back or front. You can twist and turn in the air. And you can bounce as high as you want! That’s about 33 feet high in the Olympics!

Trampoline moves have special names. Did you know there is a move called a Rudolph?  Rudolph thinks it has the best name ever!  HHHOL!

Clumsy and Rudolph had three new moves to try. One was called the Christmas Star. One was called the Snowball. And one was called the Santa Special.

The Christmas Star went well. They bounced very high. They stretched out their arms and legs to make a star shape.

The Snowball went well. They curled up into a ball and bounced on their bottoms.

The Santa Special was much trickier. They had to bounce very, very high. Then they had to do a somersault in the air. Then a double twist on the way down. And then they had to come down feet first. Just like Santa coming down the chimney!

OOPS! Clumsy came down bum first.  His clothes and hat went flying!  HHHOL!  Never mind Clumsy. Practice makes perfect!

Thank goodness I never go down chimneys like that!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

  1. it is called let’s sit down and talk about something. is where you jump and say let’s sit down and talk about something and then
    sit and see how high you go

  2. the reindeer bounce is when you jump very high and then you
    do a full twist on the way down you do a butt bounce then you land on your feet

  3. I would bounce high and sumersault.Then I would land on my feet.i would call it the Goomba Stomp.It is nomed after Mario

  10. As a matter of fact I love trampolines!In fact I love them so much that I want one in my back yard

  11. My trampoline move is the sleigh ride. you jump up into the air and you wiggle your arms and legs like the reindeer pulling Santas’s sleigh!

  12. I have not been on a trampoline in years I miss jumping on trampoline or beds. But I can’t do that on my bed since its a special made bed that can be damaged easily. But some moves you or one of the elves should try its dunking a basketball while leaping from a trampoline. I use to do it in High School it was fun. Or what about doing a somersault and trying to land on your feet that would be a good one for one of the elves to try. Hope they had fun on the trampoline today. Can’t wait to hear what happens tomorrow.

  13. Dear,Santa You know I saw you when I lived in Louisiana I saw you it was awsome you where putting Christmas presents under the tree . Oh yeah I almost forgot that Christmas I’m going to celebrate jesuss birthday are you going to celebrate Jesus birthday if your not ill know that your working hard on those presents oh yeah tell the elves that i said hi

  14. Dear Santa,
    We like to jump on trampalines! Our new move would be called the Ice Cream Twist, you flip sideways and twist. Then, land on your feet!
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
    JO & SHELBS

  15. I think one should be called the ariyah you jump in the air and while u in the air lay on your back like if u in a bed then on your way down land on your back and u should bounce right back up on your feet…
    p.s. I hope you like my idea

  16. You could have a jump called the flipper dipper where you have to jump high and flip in the air two times then dip down and bounce on your bum then bounce onto your feet xx
