Like almost all preschoolers, Tee loves Sesame Street. She loves her Sesame Street books, character T-shirts, and stuffed toys. She asked for a Sesame Street theme for her second birthday party so we decorated the living room with green and yellow streamers and primary coloured balloons. We had a green and yellow cake, and Tee’s name was spelled out in white gumpaste on a green fondant “street sign”. There were even little Sesame Street figurines playing in a rock band on top of her cake. It was a huge hit!
Her favourite Sesame Street character is loveable Elmo, so I was really excited when I saw that Sesame Street Live: Elmo Makes Music will be coming to the Lower Mainland this December. Elmo Makes Music will be hitting the stage at the Abbotsford Entertainment & Sports Centre for two shows on December 14, and playing at UBC Thunderbird Stadium in Vancouver for another five shows on December 21 and 22.
I can’t wait to see her face when she sees her favourite Sesame Street characters in real life. What a fantastic holiday treat for any preschooler!
From the website:
Mark your calendar for a musical event like no other-monsters making music! Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Big Bird and all their Sesame Street friends are taking to the stage to share their love of music in Sesame Street Live “Elmo Makes Music.”
Jenny, an enthusiastic new music teacher, arrives on Sesame Street only to discover that her instruments are missing. Jenny’s new Muppet friends quickly come to the rescue and discover ‘instruments’ they never knew existed…rubber duckies, trash can lids and even cookie jars. Elmo and friends teach children that everyone can make and enjoy beautiful music together.
Adults will hear music they’ll recognize and enjoy sharing with children, such as “The Hustle,” “You Should Be Dancing” and “Rockin’ Robin.” “Elmo Makes Music” features nearly two dozen songs, including classics that children will love to sing along with such as “C Is for Cookie” and “The Alphabet Song.”
