- Elmo feels like a giant. Hi, everybody. Today, Elmo is visiting the tiny kitchen to watch the hands make something really special. Hi, Hands! Hi, Hand! That tickles. What are you going to make today, hand? Oh, okay. Boy, Elmo's not sure what that is. Oh, that's vanilla. Yummy, yeah! That looks like an egg. Wait a minute! Hand, are you making cookies? Yay! Elmo loves cookies. Oh, you need a bowl? Here's a bowl. Oh, Hands is putting the butter in the bowl. And the brown sugar, put that in too. And the egg. Oh, is that the vanilla? Wow, good technique. Oh, now you're putting the flour in. And the baking soda. Oh, can't forget about the oats. And the cranberries. Stir, stir, stir. Look at that; that's like magic. Okay, now what? Whoa! That's the tiniest baking sheet Elmo's ever seen. And you're putting the teeny tiny little cookies on the teeny tiny little baking sheet. That's cute. Two cookies: one for Hand and one for Elmo. Be careful putting them in the oven. Now we wait. Oh, look at that! That's some whole wheat bread. Wow, look at that lettuce. Oh, let's look, what's in there? Little cheese and little turkey. Now put the bread, uh huh. Hands is making a sandwich. Yeah! Takes a steady hand. Hey, Elmo's getting hungry. Look at that little tiny sandwich! That's adorable. Look at her wrap the sandwich up in plastic. She is so good at this; she's so good at this! Carrot! Oh, be careful. Elmo's mommy and daddy always cut Elmo's food for him. It's very important. Such precision. Ah-ha, celery. Wow, this is fascinating. Here you go. The cookies are done. Yay! Careful. Oh, they smell good. Ah! Boy, it just fits. Thank goodness. Wait a minute! Are you putting that in a bag for Elmo for lunch? Oh, that's so nice of you. High five. Yeah! Thank you, Hand. Oh, bye-bye, everybody!
