The holidays are fast approaching and Santa’s elves needs some help gathering those last few special items for Santa’s sleigh.

This is an individual challenge. Use a pedometer or cardio equipment to determine the number of steps that you’ve traveled.

In this challenge, you will accumulate 8,000 steps and then make a pick. Your pick could be an activity, exercise, or an item for the sleigh. If you pick the item, you will move on immediately. If your pick is an not the item, you will complete the activity, post that you’ve completed it, and make another pick here on the challenge thread. You could have to do two activities at each stop before you pick the item.

There are 10 items to gather to fill Santa’s bag.

Santa’s got a long ride ahead of him and has to get going. The sun is glistening off the snow at the North Pole. Elvis, the elf has a lead on a handsome toy soldier in Germany, so let’s get moving.

When you’ve accumulated 8,000 steps and then make a pick (1,2, or 3) and post here on the challenge thread.

Use this template to post daily to keep track of your progress:

    I'm going to drop the other challenges - that should help you, Diane, have to focus only on this one - I'm assuming I'm the only one hanging out there. I'm ready to move forward tomorrow.

    Yes, no one else has posted since you. I finally got my computer fixed and have it relatively back to normal.
    Thanks Ruth ;)

    You have arrived in Germany. Congratulations! You found the toy soldier. Tin soldiers were produced here as early as the 1730s, by molding the metal between two pieces of slate. Toy soldiers became widespread during the 18th century, inspired by the military exploits of Frederick the Great.
    Next you are looking for a Red Wagon and there’s a well-known toy company located in Chicago, Illinois.
