Bookmark and Share

What You'll Need:

  • A large poster of Elmo.
  • Oval orange noses cut from construction paper
  • Double sided tape
  • Scissors
  • A blindfold

  1. Use scissors to cut out enough orange noses for every player.
  2. Tape the Elmo poster to a wall in the party area, keeping the height of your guests in mind.

At the Party:
  1. Choose a child to play first, and blindfold him or her.
  2. If any of the guests do not want to wear the blindfold, let them play in whatever way they are comfortable. They may be willing to close their eyes, but if not, just let them walk up to the poster to place on Elmo's nose.
  3. Place a piece of tape on the back of a nose, and hand it to the player.
  4. Depending on the age of the player, have him or her stand anywhere between 3' and 10' away from the poster on the wall.
  5. Let the player walk forward and try to correctly pin the nose on Elmo!
  6. Repeat until every player has had a turn.
  7. Whoever places their nose closest to the correct spot is the winner!
  8. If you wish, you can award all players a small prize, such as a sticker or piece of candy, and award a larger prize to the winner.
