10 Craft Ideas To Do With Sesame Street Coloring Pages
Here are 10 affordable, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!
10. Paper Dolls
Turn my Sesame Street pictures into paper dolls that your kids can get out and play with again and again.
Together, you’ll choose which characters you want to use and print them out – bonus points if you print them out onto cardstock, which is much sturdier than typical computer paper.
Your kids can color in the figures and then cut them out.
They can stop there and play with the dolls as-is or add crafting sticks to the back of the cut-outs (with glue) to make more of a puppet.
9. Party Games
With a little creativity, you can turn my Sesame Street illustrations into party games for your kid’s themed birthday.
For example, you could print a character, color it in, and hang it on a wall. Then, you’ll cut out a piece of construction paper in the round shape of the character’s nose.
To play, you’ll blindfold and give a good spin to each kid and have them attempt to pin the nose on the character.
You could also set up a little photo booth with the characters turned into masks or accessories (like Cookie Monster’s cookies or Oscar the Grouch’s trash can lid).
8. Mini-Sesame Street Storybook
The wonderful thing about my Sesame Street pictures is how they are so detailed, they seemingly tell a story.
Surely your kids – who are “so bored!” – can come up with a small storyline to go with a few of the pictures.
They can write the sentences either directly onto the pages or type them out and stick them between the coloring pages.
They’ll color in the pictures, create a cover, and then to bind, you can use a slide-on binder bar.
7. DIY Greeting Cards
My Sesame Street pictures would make adorable DIY greeting cards, whether it’s for a birthday, a holiday, or just to say hello or thank you.
You can get your kids in on the action by having them color in the main characters and cut them out.
Then, you can paste the cut-outs to the front of a piece of cardstock that is folded in half.
You can then embellish the card further with stickers, glitter, or drawn-in figures – really, anything that you like!
6. Party Decorations
For your next Sesame Street-themed birthday party, you don’t have to go all out on spending money for decorations – you can use my illustrations.
For example, you could print the characters you want to use onto shrink sheets and make cake or cupcake toppers.
The individual figures cut out and strung together would make adorable bunting for a wall or over a doorway.
And you could also color in and cut out figures, paste toilet paper rolls on the backs, and use them as table displays, centerpieces, or even place settings.
5. E Is For Elmo Crafts
This cute craft is perfect for kids learning their alphabet. It can even be adapted for kids learning cursive.
While I’m using E is for Elmo as my example, you could also modify it to include any of the Sesame Street characters – G is for Grover, or O is for Oscar, for example.
You’ll have the kids draw and cut out a large version of the first letter of the character’s name and paste it onto a piece of construction paper or poster board.
Then they’ll write “is for (Name)” next to the large letter.
They can then color in, cut out the figure of the character they’re using, and paste it onto the page.
4. Christmas Tree Ornaments
With my holiday-themed Sesame Street pictures, you can make cute, personalized Christmas tree ornaments that will be treasured for years to come.
You’ll need shrink sheets, which you can get on Amazon for less than $10. Print the characters you want to use onto the shrink sheets and color them in with markers.
You’ll cut them out and the punch holes near the top. Bake them and let them cool completely.
When they’re ready, you can add anything to them that you like – a bow, some glitter, etc. – and then loop a piece of ribbon through the holes you made.
3. Stapled Puff Characters
This is a cute craft resulting in either a toy or a decorative piece you can keep in your kid’s room.
You’ll pick a Sesame Street character whose outline is simpler; print it off twice, have your kids color in one picture, and cut both out.
They’ll start stapling around the figure, starting from the bottom. Once they’re about halfway, they can stuff in tissue paper or tissues or even cotton balls.
Then they’ll finish closing up the entire figure.
2. Sesame Street Mobiles
To make Sesame Street mobiles, you’ll pick five or six characters from my pictures, color them in and cut them out.
You’ll then cut different string lengths, poke holes in the tops of the cut-outs and tie one end of the string through it. The other end will be tied to an embroidery hoop.
To finish it off, you’ll tie three longer pieces of string to the embroidery hoop and then together; this will give you something to hang the mobile with.
1. Nursery Décor
You can use my Sesame Street pictures as inexpensive nursery décor for your little bundle of joy.
Color in the pictures using nice markers or colored pencils and then frame them; hang them up around the nursery or create a gallery wall.
