Elmo’s Brain Games

You can help children build important skills in everyday moments.

In this game, Elmo’s friends help him practice paying attention, focusing, reasoning, and building memory—skills that are like superpowers for his brain! Invite kids to play along with Elmo. They’ll practice listening to instructions, staying focused even when there are distractions, remembering several-step directions, and more.

After playing, look around your home to see if you can create your own brain games. Look for opportunities to sort, match, wait, listen, observe, and find. Remember to celebrate children’s efforts. Say, “you go, brain!”
