My Thoughts:

Ugg, the girls are sick again.  Just when you think that the summer would finish without them getting sick, they come down with some sort of virus.  I am not sure if it is the much talked about stomach virus caused by the contaminated fruit or not.  It started last night with Bella's body being hot to touch and her vomiting.  Then, all day today, she moped around and didn't want to eat.  After trying to get her to eat dinner, which she only picked at, she ended up vomiting.  Savannah came to snuggle with her and I on the floor, and then about a half hour later, she said she had a belly ache and was hot to touch. :-(  Savannah is finally sleeping, while Arabella is crying and trying to get comfy.  But, one thing that seemed to keep the girls attention early this afternoon, and keep their spirits up was helping me watch and review the recent DVD release, "Sesame Street: Arts and Crafts." 

Savannah is our arts and crafts girl in the house.  While Bella can spend hours playing with her babies, Savannah could sit at the kitchen table and do crafts.  From sticker crafts to painting and clay molding, to even coloring, she gets into arts and crafts, which is great to see.  She gets so creative and loves telling everyone about what she makes.  So, when I told her that this DVD would be about Arts and Crafts, she couldn't wait to watch it. She though that she would find inspiration for future crafts with the help of Elmo and Zoe. :-)  And, that she did!

This DVD helps teach young children about art appreciation, engineering, counting and even introduces new vocabulary to them. At 134 minutes in length, this recent DVD release is made up of two full length episodes filled with crafty fun, as well as the following bonus segments:

  • Elmo's Collage
  • Murray Visits Art School
  • Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures: Museum Guards
  • OK Go! Primary Colors

You will also be able to print off fun arts and crafts activity pages, which I ended up doing this evening, so that we can do them tomorrow afternoon.

Overall, I have to say that this new DVD release didn't disappoint.  The girls stayed engaged the entire time, and loved seeing Elmo and Zoe doing arts and crafts. This is a great DVD to get and watch with little ones, who are fans of Sesame Street.  Savannah asked me before bed if we could watch this DVD again tomorrow.  Like the other Sesame Street DVDs we own, this recent DVD release will be played over and over again, and will never get boring. :-)



The first person to email me and tell me about a fun arts and crafts project they did with their kids recently, or even send along a url to one they hope to do, will win a DVD copy of this new release, thanks to the folks at Warner Bros. and Sesame Workshop.  Good luck!
