Elmo and Rosita proceed to build the tower while singing about it. Rosita is impressed with the tower's height, but Elmo thinks it could be taller. Rosita frets when she realizes they're all out of blocks, but Elmo wonders if they can find other things to build the tower with. Rosita then spies some oatmeal containers at Hooper's Store - what if they used those to build the tower? โ€œLet's try!โ€

The two ask Chris if they can use the oatmeal containers on the shelf. Chris says no, but he just happens to have some empty containers, since Bert eats a lot of oatmeal. They immediately start adding to their block tower while singing about it.

Again, Elmo thinks the tower could be even taller still. They spot Cookie Monster on his way to recycle some empty cookie boxes, which they take off his hands. Elmo's dad gives him a 10 minute warning from afar, so they immediately resume building their tower.
