It was really exciting to plan another Sesame Street party for my youngest – this time with some of his besties in mind. Birthdayinabox.com had some incredible Sesame Street party game ideas that we used (with a few modifications) to entertain our five-and-under crowd, and I was extremely happy with the way the goodie bags turned out. Keep reading for game links (with original Birthdayinabox.com rules), tips and tricks from our try at the games, and party pictures!
It’s Simon Says with a Sesame Street twist! Birthday boy got to go first, and we encouraged everyone to wear the Elmo hat when taking their turn.
The kids had so much fun finding Ernie’s little rubber duckies, but because we played this game early on, many forgot to take them home. End the game portion of your party with this one, and make sure to have the right number of duckies (one per child, two per child, etc.).
Make sure to tap on your guests’ parents for help with this game! The four and five-year-old girls thought this one was amazing, but the little ones (and boys) were quickly disinterested.
We didn’t bother with any prizes for this one – the kids were just so excited to toss the paper in the can. It amazes me how amusing simple can be :).
We had so much fun with balloons at Elijah’s Star Wars Party it was imperative we include them for Noah’s. I blew up balloons and drew faces with sharpie (Big Bird, Oscar and Cookie) ahead of time and then just let the kids play with them as they wanted. No rules necessary. This might have been the hit of the party!
We created handmade personalized Sesame Street totes for each child (tutorial coming soon!) and included a Sesame Street board book inside. This is my favorite party giveaway we’ve ever done because Noah’s guests loved having something so personal to take home with them – and they looked awesome collectively decorating our party space . . . but more on that later :).
