your Elmo party in red, yellow and blue. Streamers, balloons,
tablecovers. Cut out large letters from yellow construction
paper and hang them around the party area as well. If you
have a goldfish - put it in a bowl in the center of your table
and you have Dorothy visiting from Elmo's world!
Make Elmo party hats! Basic red party hats will work - then
just glue white foam circles with black pupils for eyes and
an orange oval for his nose and you have an Elmo face! This
may also work on kid-sized red visors.
Play Elmo says or follow Elmo at your Elmo party. The leader
can have the guests do simple tasks like hop, skip, do a jumping
jack or two
have them act like a monkey.
Pin the nose on Elmo. Or pin a birthday hat on Elmo! Draw
or print out a picture of Elmo on a piece of poster board
and hang it on the wall. Cut out yellow noses for each guest
and put tape or poster tack on the back. Now play the traditional
game and see who gets closest to putting Elmo's nose in the
Play sorting games at your Elmo party. Set up a lot of red,
yellow and blue balloons at the party, all mixed up all over
the party area. Hang a piece of red construction paper in
one corner, blue in another, yellow in the third. Now have
the guests try to sort all the balloons to the correct corners
within a certain amount of time.
Food - Elmo loves pizza! Anything the guest of honor likes
is appropriate. You can serve red gelatin dessert. We don't
recommend red punch unless you don't mind a red spill. Make
an Elmo cake -or a goldfish shaped cake for Dorothy!
Try an Elmo goldfish toss! Get some different sized bowls
and some fish crackers. Have the guests try to toss the crackers
into the bowls. You can set different points for different
sized bowls - or if they are farther away. Or just have fun
seeing how many fish you can toss into the bowl.
