A simple and fun invitation is to create the face of one of the Sesame Street characters. Elmo for example, is quite easy to make: Take red cardstock paper and cut out an oval. Add either big wiggly eyes or round circles from white cardstock with a black pupil drawn with black permanent marker or glued on black cardstock in the shape of small circles.
Then cut out an oval out of orange construction paper for the nose and a happy Elmo smile for the mouth. Then write all the Elmo birthday party info on the back with a black marker. Here’s a small picture of what it looks like to help you out.
Another option is to use colored paper to match your child’s favorite character. Fold the paper in half and let your child decorate the front with Sesame Street stickers. Write the party invitation details inside the card. Choose yellow paper for Big Bird, bright blue paper for Cookie Monster, or pink for Abby Cadabby.
You can do the above instructions with lots of different Sesame Street characters. Another cute Elmo birthday party idea is adding fabric or material that resembles that specific character, for example a few yellow feathers for Big Bird, a patch of blue fur for Cookie Monster and/or Grover, a patch of red fur for Elmo, etc. For noses you can buy colorful pompoms at a material store (orange pompom for Elmo’s nose, pink pompom for Grover’s nose, etc.)
Add fun wording from the television show at the bottom of your invitation, such as:
“This invitation has been brought to you by the letter [first letter of your child’s name] and the number [your child’s age]! “
Invite your guests to wear their favorite Sesame Street shirt. Include a Sesame Street sticker with your Sesame Street invitations or seal the envelope with a personalized Elmo sticker.
