So along with Valentine's Day and the Superbowl my little niece Brooke is turning 2 this month! I'm helping plan her Elmo birthday party. There was really no other choice for her birthday theme...the girl loves her some Elmo! I can't believe this cutie pie is turning 2!
Her mama (my fab sister-in-law Drew) and I have already begun full planning mode, as per usual. We wanted to make some cute bags for the litle Elmo goodies all the kiddos will get, so I came up with this super simple idea. It involves 4 items: red paper bags, googly eyes, orange stiffened felt and hot glue. All things you can find at Michaels. Plus, you get to buy googly eyes...which is just fun in itself :) We taught Brooke to say "googly eyes" but it sounds more like "Goo Goo Dolls." Apparently she's a fan of them too.
Trace out Elmo's nose in the felt. Be sure to get the stiff felt, it's easier to cut. A McCormick spice top is the perfect size for Elmo's nose :)
Using a hot glue gun, glue on the googly eyes and nose and you're done! You've got Elmo's cute little face on the goody bags.
If you're interested in more Elmo cuteness, you can look at my Elmo Pinterest page. Or if you want to go back in time to check out Brooke's first birthday party, you can do that here.
I'll be featuring the full party in all its glory in a few weeks. Hooray for Elmo!
