Wrapping paper machine meets Clumsy the Elf

Wrapping paper and elves
Clumsy the Elf meets wrapping paper!

The wrapping paper workshop is very busy this time of year.  The elves are trying to wrap all of the presents I will deliver on Christmas Eve.  (You can watch me delivering those presents  Christmas Eve on my Santa Snooper.)

Today was an “extra exciting” day in the wrapping paper workshop.  We lost Clumsy the Elf for a whole day and no one could find him!

The last time anyone saw him, he was near the wrapping machine.  Then, POOF!  He was gone.

The elves looked everywhere.  They looked in the toy workshop.  They looked around the Christmas trees.  They even looked in my sleigh, but they couldn’t find Clumsy anywhere.

The elves searched for hours but they still didn’t find Clumsy.  It was getting late, and we started to get worried.  The wrapping elves turned off the wrapping machine and the lights, and they heard a sound.

It was a quiet thumping sound.  It came from the bottom of a tall stack of wrapped gifts.  The elves got closer to the sound, and they could hear a voice too. It was Clumsy — he was inside a wrapped box!

“Help!” he called.  We were happy that we found him, but we had one problem. There were hundreds of wrapped gifts, and we didn’t know which box Clumsy was in!  How would we find him?

I called everyone to help.  We started unwrapping the gifts to let Clumsy out.  We unwrapped so many gifts that the whole workshop was covered in all colors of wrapping paper.  Some of the elves jumped and played in the wrapping paper.  Some had a paper ball fight!  It was quite a mess.

Finally, I opened a small box with sparkly green paper and a red bow.  Inside, I found Clumsy!  He was so happy he was rescued at last.

Now the elves are very far behind on wrapping.  Some of you might get gifts that are not wrapped!

Clumsy said he would be much more careful in the wrapping paper room next time.  Only elves can jump into present wrapping machines because they are well trained.  Maybe Clumsy should stay away too!

P.S. Do you open gifts slowly and carefully, or do you rip into them and throw the paper?  You can click here to tell me or, scroll down to see how messy other people are with their wrapping paper!
