Happy 40 years Sesame Street! After breakfast this morning we learned how to plant carrot seeds with Michelle Obama and Elmo. Jack, however, has a certain fondness for Cookie Monster. So today we made Cookie Monster music shakers.
First we painted Cookie Monster's body.
Next we filled toilet paper rolls with cheerios, taping up the top and bottom of the tubes so they wouldn't fall out.
Finally, we glued the body on the tube. Then we added the head, arms and legs. And finally, the cookie!
Cha cha cha!
We like to shake it to this song...
Here's the template to make your own shaker toy.
