E is for Elmo Craft

Free hand or print out a large uppercase E on a white sheet of paper.

Make the famous Sesame Street character by painting the letter E red using a fork to make Elmo's furry body.

Squirt several small drops of red paint on the E, and have your child use the fork to make a furry body by pulling the fork back towards you.  Pull the fork back in various directions.  Allow the paint to dry.

**  An aside, if your kiddo enjoyed fork painting Elmo's body, try these other fork painting ideas another day:

Back to Elmo, while the paint is drying, color in a small black circle in each white circle-- these will be Elmo's' eyes.

Once the red paint is dry, glue the eyes to the top of the E.

Next, add Elmo's orange nose under the eyes and  the black mouth on the second 'arm' of the letter E.
