Happy Birthday Elmo!

It's Elmo's birthday on February 3! He's forever 3 and a half years old! Elmo, the furry, red, self-referent creature of Sesame Street fame, has enriched the lives of so many young children around the world for decades. Both children and adults are smitten by his cute, googly eyes and his high-pitched laugh. Through singing, laughter, and educational play, Elmo encourages children to use their imaginations and helps them learn preschool fundamentals.

In celebration of Elmo's birthday, create an Elmo-themed craft, cook up an Elmo treat, or share some Elmo trivia with your child!
