Growing up I loved sesame street and now that we have a daughter it’s fun to share some of my favorite things with her. This year we added the Elmo’s 12 Days of Christmas board book to our christmas book collection. It’s the perfect handheld book for toddlers and it easily fits in your purse for on the go traveling purposes.
We were inspired by our new book and favorite cartoon characters to make our own DIY Sesame Street Inspired Christmas Ornaments. So with the help of my daughter we created Cookie Monster and Elmo ornaments. This kid’s craft is perfect for a day inside with your children. I think they are adorable to hang on your own tree or give them as kid made gifts!
Supplies You Will Need:
You can buy a lot of these items online and I love hassle free shopping! I also found a lot of these supplies are at the dollar store, which is a great option because it’s affordable.
Directions for DIY Sesame Street Inspired Christmas Ornaments:
First open the paper shred and stuff your ornaments with blue or red paper. We used red for Elmo and blue for Cookie Monster. Our toddler surprisingly sat for 10-15 minutes to help me stuff the ornaments. She enjoys fine motor tasks like this, but it may not be suitable for all children and that is okay. If they need some help it’s no problem.
Next, add the eyes, nose and mouth to the ornament with your paint markers. The cartoon faces are somewhat simple so I was able to freehand the eyes and mouth. Please note, I am not artistic at all! You can do this with little artistic ability! If your children have a difficult time with this you could shape the outline and let them fill in the white eyes and the colors of the mouth and nose.
You are finished! Now it’s time to hang your beautiful ornaments inspired by sesame street on your tree.
This ornament is a part of the awesome Mama Miss “10 Days of a Kid-Made Christmas” with over 70 ornaments inspired by our favorite children’s books!
