The main man, so to speak, of Sesame Street is Big Bird! This gangly-legged guy is so cute. Get the puppet and get your bird on.

Cookie Monster reminds us that cookies are delicious.

And he's big and beautiful to boot! That's good enough for me!

      Thank you so much! I actually just gloeogd Sesame Street Sign Template. Imported the image and did some creative work. I think I was able to do it in Publisher. Wiping out the existing text and adding my own personalized text. I also some pictures on pinterest where people cut out the sign and letters from construction paper and glued it all together. I hope that helps!
