My baby had his first birthday party last month, and it was Cookie Monster themed. The funny thing about 1st birthday themes is that they are totally parent-chosen. 12-month-olds don’t really have opinions yet (…laughing at how much this has changed in just the last month), no obvious favorite characters, etc.
Baby does love his milk. Dad does make a funny Cookie Monster voice. Mom does love chocolate chip cookies. Cookie Monster it is!
The first thing I made was this Cookie Monster throw rug. This Instructables page has step-by-step instructions. I bought blue faux fur shag fabric (1.5 yds), and – aside from shedding everywhere in our house – it was perfect!
I loved making this, and it looks so cute on the floor of our playroom. As for Baby? He crawled on the rug juuust long enough for a photo op, then on to something else.😆
