Mister Rogers arrives with peas that need to be shelled. In the kitchen, he shows how to remove the peas from their pods and explains that shelling peas is one of many simple tasks that young children can do. As he continues shelling the peas, Mister Rogers sings Children Can.

At Brockett's Bakery, Mister Rogers watches as Eva Kwong and her grandmother make dumplings wrapped in bamboo leaves. Back at the house, he talks about important things that grandparents can teach their children and grandchildren.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin and Queen Sara are making balcony covers when Edgar Cooke arrives at the castle and sees the Trolley's car cover.

Meanwhile, Corney has been working on a cover that looks like a horse for one of his rocking chairs. On her way to deliver the "rocking horse" to the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Aberlin informs Chef Brockett that Edgar Cooke needs his help in making a refrigerator cover.

Strangely, Corney's rocking horse flies from Lady Aberlin's hands and soars just out of reach. In an unsuccessful attempt to attrack the rocking horse, Lady Aberlin rings Henrietta's bell which is covered with a pea pod.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers hides a small bell inside an empty pea pod. Playing a game, viewers are to guess which of the pods contains the bell.
