SAFARI STORIES WEEK

July 19 - July 25

Safari Stories Video Links are HERE!

It’s time to heed the call of the wild with this week’s Safari-themed game show and craft.
Plus, you’ll find out all about animal superpowers and explore your own artistic superpowers of puppetry and drawing with this week’s special guests.

First, join in the fun with our Sofa Safari game show. Then we wukk go on a flashlight safari with an awesome project that’s part craft and part optical illusion. Next we’ll meet David DePasquale illustrator of A Wisdom of Wombats, and lead animator for the Netflix movie Arlo the Alligator Boy.
Grab a pencil because David will teach us how to draw Arlo! We’ll also visit Jim Hammond, puppet master from the Lion King and make our own hand puppets. Finally, we’ll discover what animals have superpowers when we meet Cindi Cavalini from Teachers of Nature and some of her scaly, spiny, sticky, feathered friends.

SHOW DAY: The Sofa Safari Game Show
What animal eats upside down? Can you pronk like a springbok? What animals never fart? These questions and more will be answered during Sofa Safari, the interactive game show that takes you on a safari without leaving your sofa!
