Happy 2nd Birthday Rex!!
I recently had the pleasure of attending a Elmo birthday party held in Rex's honor. His mom, Andrea, used her craftiness to personalize his party and to bring the theme to life.
Using some poster-board, a black marker and some die cuts, Andrea made this adorable sign to incorporate the Sesame Street theme.
Pin the Nose on Elmo!!
To create this spin on a classic children's game, Andrea used a over-head projector to enlarge an image of Elmo that she found online. She traced his face onto red butcher paper and cut it out. She used white paper for the eyes and made several noses from orange butcher paper. To finish, she laminated all the pieces.
Each guest was given the opportunity to pin a nose on Elmo.
Since the guests were pretty young, Andrea didn't bother with a blindfold. As you can see it really didn't make a difference none of them got to close. But it was a lot of fun watching them try.
Andrea ordered a Elmo shirt from WackyPlanet.com and it arrived within a week. She had a local friend screen print his name and age on the back of the shirt.
For dessert she ordered cupcakes with vibrant frosting and added Elmo sticks to them.
The party was a lot of fun and everyone had a wonderful time celebrating with Rex!!
