Celebrate Elmo's Birthday With These Elmo Themed Crafts
Elmo may always be 3 and half in our hearts but each year he has a birthday! Celebrate everyone's favorite little monster with themed crafts! I'm sharing some great ideas for how you can celebrate Elmo's birthday!
Elmo's Birthday | Paper Plate Craft
This paper plate craft is super easy and requires few materials, I have deemed the paper plate version of this Elmo inspired craft as the "messy" one since it requires paint. There is also a mess-free version if you click over to the post. A little mess can be fun (at the right time). I free cut the eyes, nose and mouth and let my little one place the pieces herself, which makes for a fun Avant garde take on Elmo!
