Together (as a family if possible), watch Elmo, Abby, Rudy, Freddie, and Louie describe their families. You might ask:

  • How do Abby and Rudy explain their new family relationships? (Remind children that Abby’s mommy married Rudy’s daddy, so that makes them stepbrother and sister.)
  • How are their families the same as ours? How are they different?

You might sing the chorus (“we’re a family”) to children and invite them to sing along together…especially when the moment seems to call for it.
