how does this sound for our invitation hunt

Ok I have been working at this awhile and reworded and reworded. Please let me know what you all think and if you can guess when the kids have to go. This will be done in December when all our Christmas stuff will be up.

Dear Children,

You have been very good this year,
So do not worry or shed a tear.
I have decided to do,
something very different for you.
I know its early for your Christmas gift,
but I know this will not cause a rift.
I am going to send you on a hunt,
now now don't you grunt.
It will all be worth it,
when you find your gift.
Don you will be up first,
I know you wont need coerced.

Santa Claus






First clue:
"I have a lock that must be unlocked,
for this you wont be clocked.
There are many types of me,
and pirates often take me to sea.
Its color is black,
and can be unpacked.
its placement is easy
just dont be quesy.
The room that its in
is far from an inn.
you got to go below
to a place without a window."





Your head's on your shoulders Don -- you found this fast.
Let's see how Julia does on the next pass.
Julia now its your turn to unravel this clue

"Wake up, Wake up, sleepyheads!
Time to get going like rushing from bed.
a first stop each morning, sun or rain.
Time to visit before time goes down the drain.
Dont stay here to long
or your end up singing a song.
some people use me at night
others use me in the daylight."



"You're making great strides to come to the end,
but there are more clues that await all of you, my friends.
Destiny now its your turn to think of were to go

"Maybe a clue round-up is all you need,
I hope you figure it our with great speed.
Cowboys give me my name,
I can also be hard to tame.
You can ride me til you decay
but wont get very far im afraid
Trot trot trot
til you find what you sought."





Well done again, you're on your way
to discover your surprise on this great day.
Gwen your up next so try your best.

"Clues appear like magic, showing there or here,
kind of like the room where stains disappear.
I go round and round and round,
and clean up what you bring from the playground.
Did you get the tip that i gave you,
This is your last clue.
You will need to lift a lid,
to find what i have hid."






You're almost at an end, have you figured it out?
We'll keep going until you know what it's about.
Emily its your turn to take a swing.

"To ensure enough energy to blast off from here,
make a pit stop and refuel and find a clue near.
I keep things cold or i keep it colder,
you will seek me more and more as you get older.
I have two sides that open up
but only one where you put a cup.
I wont be hiding where its freezing
I will be where I can be chilling.
Put water in me neighbor
to get ice out later"



"This is almost the end of our journey I fear,
and hope you've had fun with the trip to here.
Now, Abby time for you to take lead.
I know you can do this deed.

"The final clue is easy to seek,
All you have to do is not to peek.
Its under a skirt,
that will never see any dirt.
Its only seen one time a year
which you also see reindeer.
This is not a skirt you wear,
it holds presents to bear.
I am under something green and big
it holds stuff on its twig.
Do you get your clue,
you can ask mom or dad for help too."




"You have made you way to the end,
this i will not pretend.
are you wondering whats inside?
or do you just want to go outside?
there is a letter for each of you,
you will get this when we are through.
you must open them together,
and dont just say whatever.
i hope you had fun,
doing this little run.
now go ahead abby and hand them out,
just please dont shout."

trying to figure out what to put this on so that they are cuter than just a plain piece of paper. what can i do to make these more special? the first part of each clue other than the first will be on the outside of the envelope.

Clues will be full sheets, and envelopes will be large manilla envelopes.

Try opening in word and stretch to full page?

I designed them as 8.5x11 and 300dpi. So it should work and not be funky...maybe a bother designer can help us understand what's wrong?
