Merry Christmas! I am so excited to talk to you about what just happened. This morning I woke up, just like I do every day. I had had a pleasant sleep and was feeling great. Then I got a surprise. A Christmas Scavenger Hunt surprise!
On the table by my bed, there was an envelope. This envelope was red and had my name on it. I opened it straight away. I was confused. Inside was a piece of paper with two sentences.
Christmas Scavenger Hunt Clue #1
“Open wide and do not blink
Brush them all before they stink”
Well, I had no idea what that meant. They must have been talking about a door. I looked at the door to my bedroom. Nothing. I looked at my closet door. Noting. I looked at every door I could find. Nothing. I left the note and started my day.
I combed my hair, washed my face, and brushed my teeth. As I was brushing my teeth, I opened my mouth wide. I stopped and chuckled. Of course! I looked at the toothpaste. There was a note stuck to it. I had solved the first riddle. If I were going to solve another one, I would have to think differently. I opened the next note.
Clue Number Two!
“My nose is orange; my eyes are black
I stay for winter but don’t come back”
Well. This one really had me stumped. Who would stay for winter and not come back? I thought of my elves, but they were here year round. I thought about the nose. Who would have an orange nose? I tried to think about things which are here in winter and not at other times of the year. Christmas? Snow? Robins? None of them had black eyes. Then it hit me. Snow! Well, not snow. Snowmen! They have carrots for noses and coal for eyes. I ran to the front door and opened it. There was a snowman. In his hand was this note.
“It takes your food and makes it hotter
On top is where you boil your water”
Well, this one I knew straight away. As you may know, I love to eat. This clue was talking about the stove in the kitchen. I ran to the kitchen and opened it. Inside was a hot plate of food. Pancakes, sausages, eggs, hash browns, mushrooms, beans, tomatoes, toast, and waffles. I sat down and ate it.
I found out later that Mrs. Claus had created the Christmas Scavenger Hunt for me. It made me really happy. Now I have a riddle for you.
“My nose is bright to light my way
I love to fly and pull a sleigh”
Can you solve it?
