  • - Shark, shark!

  • - Cookie, Cookie! - There's a shark!

  • There's a shark right there! - I know, I know.

  • - Watch out, be careful!

  • - 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.

  • 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!

  • - That looks terrific.

  • - It sure is.

  • We have one more step, step three.

  • 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.

  • (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!
