<< Previous Episode | Next Episode >>
 

Daniel Tiger is going on a picnic with his friends, Prince Wednesday and Miss Elaina. They work together to lift the heavy basket of food into the Trolley and are taken with Dad Tiger to the clock factory where Daniel's dad works.

After laying out the picnic blanket, the friends play a game as they choose their snacks from the basket. Daniel's dad goes inside the clock factory since it is almost "chime time." Meanwhile, some ants find their way to the picnic as Daniel and his friends imagine what it would be like to to be tiny like the ants.

The children decide to play a game of "kick the ball" but the ball bursts when Prince Wednesday falls on top of it. The flattened ball is certainly disappointing, but Daniel's dad is able to help the children find a bright side of the situation. Daniel and his friends use the flattened ball like a Frisbee to play a new game they call "splat ball."

When it starts to rain, everyone heads inside the clock factory where it happens to be "chime time." As all of the clocks sound, the disappointed children decide to have an inside picnic so they can enjoy the clocks.

Together, everyone sings a song about finding something positive in disappointing situations.


Strategy

  • "When something seems bad, turn it around and find something good."
