Elmo Birthday Party Theme

Updated on April 28, 2015

Elmo Birthday Party Supplies and Ideas

When my boys were little they loved Elmo! I think they secretly still enjoy him, although they won't admit it. :)

If your little one loves the cuddly red monster, then a birthday party that celebrates all things Elmo will have them smiling ear to ear!

Below you will find kids birthday party supplies, party food, birthday gifts and game ideas to create the best Elmo Party Ever!

Personalized Elmo Birthday Banner

Elmo Personalized Birthday Banner

Make your child's big day extra special with a personalized birthday banner! Add your customized message to ensure your banner is truly unique. Banners are made of heavy-duty vinyl so they're durable enough to withstand serious kid-play and all types of weather.

Banner measures 61"W x 18"H and includes metal grommets for easy hanging indoors or out.

Come to my Elmo Party!

First, you'll want to design Elmo invitations. You can either hand by draw or use clip art of Elmo. Just an outline will work well. You can color it red with crayons and then copy the invite on a color copier (so you only have to color one!). Write your date and times and make it really fun by sending it in a red envelope. Another fun touch would be to find red fur at a craft shop and create an Elmo face with googly eyes!

You can find more information about the adorable homemade invitations pictured here at The Three Me's Blog.

Elmo Giant Mylar Balloon

Elmo Airwalker Foil Balloon

Bigger than baby! This balloon is especially fun because it floats as if it’s walking around the party room. Balloon measures approximately 54" high. Helium is what gives this balloon the ability to “walk”. It's like having Elmo himself at your party! (Helium tank sold separately.)

Elmo Pinata

Elmo Pull String Pinata

Gotta love me!

Your pint-sized party guests will adore this Elmo pinata! One magical string will release all the treasures you've tucked inside. Kids can take turns, or hold onto separate strings and pull together.

A removable sticker marks the secret location where candy and toys should be inserted. Paper.

Candy gifts for kids not included. Piñata fillers sold separately.

Elmo Mylar Balloon

Hooray for Elmo Mylar Balloon

Mylar balloons make decorating for a party easy and fun. Be sure to have several on hand for decorating inside (tying a balloon to the birthday child's chair is a popular idea), and outside (to easily identify the party location). Balloon measures approximately 17" in diameter.

Elmo Party Games!

How many Dorothy's? Fill a small fish bowl with goldfish crackers and have the kids guess how many Dorothy's are in the bowl!

Pin the Nose on Elmo Draw a big Elmo face then give the kids an Elmo "nose", blindfold them and see who can get Elmo's nose in the right spot!

Coloring Contest Make sure every child wins! You can print some fun coloring pages at SesameStreet.org

Oscar the Grouch Garbage Toss Empty trash can. (You can also use a bucket.) Take junk mail that you might have around the house (or old newspapers, etc) and crumple it up into balls. Get the kids to toss the junk mail balls into Oscar's garbage can.

You can set different distances for ball toss: right in front of the target, few feet away, several yards away, etc. Have the children toss "balls" from those distances for points. Set a different point structure for every distance.

Follow Elmo It's fun to watch young kids dance. Get the music ready before Elmo birthday party. Pick the leader out of the group - he or she will be Elmo. Have the children lined up behind the leader or spread out around the room. As the music CD starts playing the leader begins moving his body with different dance moves. All the other kids copy the leader's moves. If the leader needs some help, encourage him or her with moves like: jumping, hopping, turning around, clapping hands, bending/twisting, etc. Have the birthday child going first and then switch to another player to be Elmo until everyone has had a chance.

Swim Dorothy Swim "Uh-Oh!", Elmo's pet fish Dorothy jumped out of her bowl!

Purchase a large fish bowl and three orange bean bags, or plastic goldfish. March an "x" on the floor, a reasonable distance from the bowl. The children will take turns tossing the fish into the bowl. Another variation: make fish out of orange socks, dried beans, plastic google eyes, and felt fins. Twist a rubber band to close the beanbag and the remaining fabric became the goldfish tail.

Pin the Nose on Elmo Game
