Clumsy the elf watches elves in Mrs. Claus' kitchen
Elves helping in Mrs. Claus’ kitchen. Hope they don’t get Slimed by Clumsy the Elf

Clumsy the elf loves to help in the kitchen.  He loves to make Christmas treats.

There is one small problem.

Usually, when Clumsy tries to help, something goes wrong.  Here is what happened this morning…

Clumsy the elf was awake before any of the other elves.  He was awake before Mrs. Claus and me.  He was so excited for Christmas that he could not sleep. Clumsy wanted to bake some special Christmas cookies for everyone at the North Pole.  So he went to the kitchen to bake the cookies.

Clumsy in the Kitchen!

Clumsy the elf is not very good at remembering things.  We all know that cookies have flour, butter, baking powder, baking soda, chocolate chips, sugar, salt, and more.  All Clumsy could remember was baking soda.  He put some in a bowl.  He could not think of any other ingredients.

Clumsy the elf knew that something was wrong.  This was not usually how cookies looked before going in the oven.  They looked more gloopy, usually.  He needed something gloopy.  He found some glue.  That would do just the trick.  He poured the glue into the bowl and mixed it in.  That looked better.

Clumsy the elf wanted the cookies to be red and green, so he added some red and green colouring.  He mixed the colours together, and the mix turned brown.  Clumsy was not happy.  He thought that some glitter would help, so he threw some gold glitter in.  It was definitely better, but not quite right.  Then Clumsy remembered salt!  He looked on the shelf.  There was the container. S-a-l-, that was it!  Clumsy poured it in.  Wait, that did not look right.  He read the container.  It said, Saline.  It was for Mrs Claus’ contact lenses.

Clumsy the Elf gets Slimed!

Oh well. Clumsy looked at the mixture and tried to divide it up into cookie shapes, but he could not.  He rolled it in his hands.  Then he pulled it apart.  He stretched it.  Hey, this was fun.  The more he played with it, the more fun he had.

When Mrs Claus came into the kitchen, she was very surprised.  Clumsy showed the slime to her, and she thought it was a very cool toy.  She suggested that we make some for Christmas presents this year.  Maybe we will.

If you would like Clumsy the elf’s slime recipe so you can make it at home, here it is:

  • 4oz washable school glue
  • Your choice of food colouring
  • 1/4 cup glitter
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2-3 Tbsp. saline solution

I hope you have fun making it.  If you do make it, send me a picture or tell me what you do with it.  Merry Christmas.
