(screaming) - Shark, shark! - Cookie, Cookie! - There's a shark! There's a shark right there! - I know, I know. - Watch out, be careful! - Cookie, it's not real, it's a backpack. We're making it. So, this craft is perfect for Halloween, dress up, or just to have a really awesome backpack. - Yeah! Follow along and make your own shark costume! - So here are the supplies you'll need, an old backpack, cardboard. For this we're actually using an old cookie box. Some white felt, large googly eyes, duct tape, a hot glue gun, tape measure and scissors. - Where do we start? - Okay, so step one, (upbeat music) make our shark teeth. So first we're gonna take a tape measure and we're gonna measure the zipper of the backpack. And now, we're gonna take I over there to the felt. Right here, to the felt. So this is how long our teeth will be. And it's okay if you need to use more than one felt sheet to make your teeth. So Cookie, do you wanna draw the top and bottom teeth? - Me would love that. (upbeat music) Wavy, wavy, wavy! There. Now what? - Now we cut the teeth out. - Oh, wait a minute! You got to make sure that you ask a grownup to help you cut out teeth, very important. - Yes, I'll help you Cookie Monster. - You a grownup? - I am. - Then start cutting. (upbeat music) Snip. Snip. - We've got teeth! - Oh wow! They look-- - Let's try 'em on. Oh yeah! Nice smile Cookie. (laughing lightly) So once we got two sets of these, for the top and the bottom, we're gonna glue 'em on to our backpack. Make sure to have an adult use the hot glue gun 'cause it gets very, very hot. - Very hot, you know what? Me gonna stand back. - Good. - You know what, me gonna go even further. - Okay. - You know what, me gonna go back here. - However. That's fine. - Sorry, me no can. What? - What? (upbeat music) Pretty good right? - Yeah! That look like shark mouth! - Yeah it does! Next is step two. (upbeat music) Create our shark fins. We're gonna need three triangles. So I've already made two triangles. - Two triangles. - But we need one big triangle and two little triangles. - Two little. We need another little. - We need another little. So, I would like you to trace my little triangle. - Little triangle coming up! (upbeat music) There! - Nice. - Thank you. - All right now we're gonna cut it out. - Okay. (upbeat music) - So now we're gonna take our big fin and we're gonna fold it in half. We're gonna take our tape and we're gonna wrap our fins so that they look like shark fins. So I finished taping up mine. Cookie how'd you do on your fin? - Uh, me little stuck. - Aye, aye, aye. - Me little stuck. - Okay! So once you have your three fins all taped up it's time to attach them to the bag. And you can use tape or hot glue gun. We are gonna use tape. (upbeat music) Cookie you have to at least hold it there for a second and I'm gonna tape it. (upbeat music) Cookie we did it! - Wow! - We did it! - That looks terrific. - It sure is. We have one more step, step three. (soft upbeat music) Add our shark eyes. Okay so we're gonna take our googly eyes. - Those look vaguely familiar. - Oh, I can't imagine why. And then we're gonna put them right here on the backpack right on top. So for this we are gonna use a glue gun. And remember, it's hot. - Me gonna stand back. - I'm gonna put the glue on the googly eyes. (soft upbeat music) - One googly eye. - One googly eye. Two googly eyes. Ta-da! Our finished shark costume.

(dog barking softly) - Today Elmo, Abby and I are making sock puppets. Like the sock puppy. (dog barking softly) - Ooh! - Hi there puppy! (giggling softly) (dog barking softly) - Hello doggy! - Hi Elmo! - Yeah, and you can make one too. Follow along with us. - Let's get crafty. To make a sock puppy, you'll need, socks, felt, cardboard. For cardboard, we will be using an old cereal box, googly eyes, a ruler, glue gun, scissors and pom-poms. (upbeat music) Step one, pick sock body's for your puppies. (giggling softly) - Elmo wants Elmo's sock puppy body to be the color yellow! - [Nina] All right! - And I want mine to have spots. - Nice. All right step two, we're going to give our puppy's mouths. - Yeah! So they can say woof, woof, woof! (giggling softly) - And oh! - First thing we're gonna do is we're gonna grab a roll of tape. - Uh huh. - And we're gonna draw a circle on our cardboard, which is actually a cereal box. Give it a try. - Nice work. - Look! - All right! Now we're gonna cut it out. - Be sure to ask an adult to help you cut out the circles. (giggling softly) - Will you help us cut out the circles? - Of course. - Please! - Of course, of course. All right, so now we're gonna snip snip around and then we're gonna keep going. (dog barking softly) And now we have a circle. (giggling softly) We fold the circle in half, just like this. Fold, so now, we're gonna line up our mouth, a little circle, straight line here, you see that straight line? We're gonna line it up with the line over here, the seam of the sock. Then we'll put glue on the mouth. And be sure to cover the whole circle with glue okay? - Remember, to ask an adult to help you use the hot glue gun 'cause it gets hot baby! (giggling softly) - Press into the sock and smooth it out, just like that. Now we just let it dry. What should we do while we wait? - Let's dance! (upbeat music) All right, so now that our sock puppies are dry, we're gonna turn the sock inside out. - Ooh! - And watch. Here we go! - And voila! - Look, there it is, there it is! - Look it's a puppy mouth! - All right it's time for step three. Decorate our puppies. What do we need to make our sock puppies look like puppy? - Oh, eyes! - Ears! - Oh and a tongue! - And a (sniffing softly) nose. - Nose, right! - Yes! All right, so I've gone ahead and cut out some doggy tongues out of this pink felt. So here you go you can have one, I'll take on and then you can have one. - Thank you. - I also cut out some doggy ears from all of these felt colors. All right, so let's see, what colors do you want for your ears? - Elmo would like purple please. - Elmo you can have the purple. I'll take the pink. Abby, what do you want? - I think I would like an orange and a blue. One orange, one blue! - One orange, one blue, I love it. So what eyes do you want your puppy to have? - Oh Elmo likes the pink ones! - Ooh okay.
