Sesame Street & Muppet Baby Shower Ideas
Sesame Street is a very popular baby shower theme, as well as Nursery decorations. There’s Elmo, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie, just to name a few. With a Sesame Street theme, generally, you would use bold colors of red, blue, green and yellow. Other characters may represent softer colors, but the main characters are boldly colored. This is because children are most attracted to the bold shades of the primary colors – red, blue, yellow, and the secondary color, green.
Trash Toss – Using an Oscar theme set up a game with a trash can. Give prize for the most successful tosses in the can.
Rubber Ducks – Using an Ernie theme, set up a “pond” (in a large tub) and let guests fish for rubber ducks. Each duck has a number on the bottom which corresponds to a prize.
Guess How Many – Using a Count theme, set up a clear container with a lot of small candies inside – like gum balls, etc. The person who gets closest to the number wins. You can use various items and have more than 1 jar.
