"We’re Out of Christmas Toys!"
Written and typed by Lauren, age 9*
“The toys are all gone,” cried the elves. They all ran around looking for Christmas toys. “We can’t be out of everything! We are out of screws so we can’t build dollhouses for girls and Nerf guns for boys. Santa is going to be sad.”
Just then Santa walked in. “Where are my toys, the sack has nothing in it? Where are they?”
“We ran out of everything, we are sorry Santa,” said the head elf.
“We can’t go around the world with no toys tomorrow. What will we do?”
“I have an idea,” said Steven the elf in training.
“What is it?”
“My idea is to go to the stores and buy what we need while we are in a disguise.”
“That won’t work,” said his sister.
“Actually it will if we get the right disguise,” said Santa. “Lets go.” So they went and got dressed up and went to the stores and no one knew who they were. They went back to the North Pole and made the toys. Christmas was saved all because of Steven the elf in training.
