Monday: Sofa Safari Game Show
What animal eats upside down? Can you pronk like a springbok? What animals never pass gas? These questions and more will be answered during Sofa Safari, the interactive game show that takes you on a safari without leaving your sofa!
Tuesday: Flashlight Safari
A zip lock bag, black and white construction paper, and permanent markers are all that’s needed to make this project that’s part craft and part optical illusion.
Wednesday: Meet Illustrator David DiPasquale
Illustrator David DePasquale will share his debut picture book A WISDOM OF WOMBATS about the wonderful words we use to describe groups of animals. David is also the lead character designer on Arlo the Alligator Boy, a new Netflix movie available now! Grab a pencil and paper because David will teach you how to draw Arlo!
Thursday: Mashup Day
Get ready for a roaring good time when Jim shares some backstage secrets, and teaches us the five steps to becoming a fantastic puppeteer. This day includes a bonus video that will teach you how to make your own “peeper puppets” just like Jim’s.
Friday: Animal Superpowers
Every animal needs a superpower to survive. Cheetahs have speed, chameleons have camouflage and birds have flight. Meet real live animal superheroes in this “wild” program.
