Mischief Makers: All Wrapped Up

Glitter was taking charge.

She was NOT going to let Nim make a mess, mischief or mayhem this night.

She had a plan.

“I thought we could wrap the kitchen table tonight,” said Glitter.


“Ok, we could also–“.


“But what about–“.


“Just one–“.


“Ok, ok. We’ll wrap the table. I’ll just go get the ribbon and paper.”

“I already have everything we need,” Glitter smiled, standing next to a spool of multi-colored ribbon and a roll of Christmas wrapping paper.

She wasn’t going to let him out of her sight for one second.


As they got started wrapping the table, Nim kept trying to pull ribbon all over the room, or fly around unwinding the wrapping paper.

Glitter wasn’t having it. She pulled the ribbon from his grasp. She yanked the wrapping paper away from him. She grabbed the tape from his hands.

He wasn’t going to get away with anything.

Nim huffed. He smiled. He giggled.

He was enjoying every minute of this game.

Glitter turned her back to tape the final corner of the table and Nim took his chance.

He flew at Glitter with the spool of ribbon, planning to tie her feet together. And, if she hadn’t turned around, he would have had her.


At the last moment, she reared up, grabbed the ends of the ribbon and galloped around and around Nim until he was tied tightly to the spool.

Nim was shocked.

Glitter began laughing uncontrollably.

“I did it! I have you now Nim! There’s no way you can escape!”

Nim twisted this way and turned that way. But it was no use. He was tied too tightly. Glitter had won the night.


Glitter was filled with glee at having bested Nim. She ran around the freshly wrapped table throwing curls of ribbon in the air.

When she had calmed down, she trotted over to Nim and smiled.

“Well, now what are you going to do with me?” asked Nim.

“Hang you from the light fixture,” answered Glitter cheerfully.

“What about my joke? The boys will be looking for it.”

“Don’t worry. They’ll see it.”

Nim’s Joke

Knock, Knock

Who’s there?


Rabbit who?

Rabbit up carefully, it’s a present!


Kindness Card

Call someone to wish them a Merry Christmas.
