No-Sew Hats for Sesame Street Live: Can’t Stop Singing + Giveaway

No Sew Sesame Street Hats for Sesame Street Live - Toddling Around Chicagoland

Sesame Street Live: Can’t Stop Singing is coming to the Chicago area! It’ll be at the Sears Center in Hoffman Estates for performances on April 4-6, 2014. The boys will be so excited about this as soon as I tell them. For now I’m keeping it a secret to surprise them and building up some anticipation with this fun and easy craft.

My boys are pretty obsessed with hats and love playing dress up so I thought making some fun Sesame Street character hats would work for both of those.

I picked up several knit hats (I even got most of them on clearance because spring is coming) and used some felt to add the details to the hats. I keep a large stash of felt for projects, but if you’re going out to buy it it’s really inexpensive.

Since felt can be a bit difficult to cut, I did that part myself. If the kids were a little older I might have let them help. I looked at some pictures of Sesame Street characters and figured out what shapes I needed to create each face. Since the kids already have an Elmo hat we didn’t make Elmo, but we made Oscar the Grouch, Baby Bear, Grover, Ernie, Telly Monster, and Cookie Monster.

I cut out all the shapes and then the boys and I worked together to put the right pieces on each hat.

We used Liquid Stitch, a fabric adhesive, to attach the felt to each hat. The kids needed a little guidance on how to cover all the space evenly, but they did most of the gluing themselves.
