Have you watched an episode of Daniel Tiger's Neighbourhood on Kids' CBC? The show is an animated preschool series that focuses on the social and emotional development of preschool aged children. The show is based on Mister Rogers' Neighbourhood. Daniel is a 4 year old tiger who lives in the neighbourhood of Make Believe.
Here are some ways to have fun with favourite TV characters like Daniel Tiger:
1. Have a themed scavenger hunt. We recently held a Daniel Tiger themed neighbourhood scavenger hunt and used this sheet to help kids find things in their neighbourhood. The kids loved exploring and searching for items on the list.
2. Make your own portable Daniel Tiger play set. Kids will love creating their own stories with their favourite characters from the show. Download the character print outs here.
3. If your child loves a certain episode, you can also build in similar activities into your child's life. On a recent Daniel Tiger episode, Daniel received mail from his Grandfather. My kids loved the idea of sending and receiving mail so we mailed some art creations to family members too.
