I loved Curious George as a kid so I’m thrilled that my own kids enjoy it too and love to watch it! We also love Valentine’s Day so I knew they would be excited to watch the new Valentine’s Day episode, airing today on PBS!
George loves his friends and wants to make them all homemade Valentine’s cards! That proves to be a little tricky with four paws though! Always a problem solver, George comes up with a solution using sponges, a waffle iron and paints and creates his own printing press!
You can re-create this craft with your kids at home and they will love the chance to create things for their friends and family. My kids love doing crafts together and I knew this would be one they’d enjoy.
More importantly, I like that George showed that anything is possible and sometimes to solve problems you just need to take a little time to think and get creative!
Check your local listings to catch the Curious George Valentine’s Day episode on PBS today and then print out the instructions for the craft below and enjoy with your kids! There are also links for additional crafts and sneak peak videos!
About the DVD
The ninth season of Curious George, the PBS KIDS hit series, continues with a new episode full of love and curiosity on Monday, February 9, 2015 (check local listings).
In “Happy Valentine’s Day, George,” Curious George wants to make his friends the best Valentine’s Day card ever, but even with four paws, it takes a long time to create homemade cards for everyone. Using sponge shapes, red paint, and a waffle iron, George creates the first ever monkey Valentine’s printing press!
“George is a little monkey with a big heart,” says executive producer Dorothea Gillim. “Between George’s monkey antics and a catchy song, this episode is our Valentine to all our loyal viewers.”
This season continues to focus on teaching preschoolers about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts, as well as use of the five senses (smell, taste, hearing, touch, and sight). The curious monkey’s adventures go in “Oh Deer.” When a hungry deer keeps nibbling on the flowers in George and Allie’s garden, George uses all of his five senses to keep the deer out. A scarecrow, loud noises, sticky tape, and stinky rotten eggs don’t work, leaving George with one last sense: taste! Will George’s recipe keep the deer away or make them hungry for more?
Curious George airs weekdays on PBS KIDS (check local listings). For more monkey fun, parents can access a variety of fun and educational resources, including games on the five senses like “Roller Monkey” and “Cows Don’t Quack!” on the Curious George website.
