|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a bag of sand which he takes to the back yard where he adds it to his sand table. As he sifts through the sand, he thinks of the many things that people do with sand like playing in it and walking in it.
Mister Rogers has an idea and takes a cup of sand inside to the kitchen but is interrupted by a phone call from Tony Chiroldes. Mr. Chiroldes invites Mister Rogers to visit his shop where he will be reading a book to children. At Mr. Chiroldes' shop, he reads Tengo Seis Años.
Returning to his house, Mister Rogers goes to the kitchen where he works on an art project using the sand he brought in from the sand table. He draws a number 6 on a piece of paper with glue and sprinkles sand on the glue.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday informs Hula Mouse that an art festival will be held in the Neighborhood as Queen Sara shares a piece of her work made using several number 3s. Neighbor Aber and the others in Westwood are planning a sand sculpture for the festival and Hula Mouse is asked to help bring sand to the Neighborhood.
At the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Elaine is not impressed with the art creations of the others and feels like only her work is real art. She shares an images she has created of one of the museum's pillars and reveals that she has appointed herself to be the judge of the art festival.
As Neighbor Aber admires the artwork created by Queen Sara and Prince Tuesday, Lady Elaine provides her more-realistic image of the EIffel Tower; however, Grandpere prefer's Tuesday's drawing.
