Scavenger Hunt

Giant Easter Eggs have been hidden all over the Sesame Street Forest of Fun and England Village! During Cookie Monster Weekend, grab a scavenger hunt worksheet and search for all six eggs. Each egg will have a color and a shape that you can match on your worksheet. To receive a special treat, turn in your completed worksheet at Abby Cadabby's Treasure Trove or at Kidsington Palace in England Village.

Unleash Your Creativity

Color your favorite characters or a design of your own creation and we'll display your artwork on the Sesame Street Sunny Days Mural for all to see. And come back each weekend for new crafts!

What would Sesame Street be without everyone's favorite grouchy friend? Oscar the Grouch will be making special appearances during Kids' Weekends. If you see him and his Scram Trash Can, don't be shy—say hi!
