We are so excited about the new Curious George special for Valentine’s Day, “Happy Valentine’s Day, George!”
In “Happy Valentine’s Day, George,” Curious George wants to make his friends the best Valentine’s Day card ever, but even with four paws, it takes a long time to create homemade cards for everyone. Using sponge shapes, red paint, and a waffle iron, George creates the first ever monkey Valentine’s printing press! This episode is such a great combination of fun, silliness and problem solving that kids will love and learn from! “This episode is our Valentine to all our loyal viewers.” says executive producer Dorothea Gillim.
We love everything Curious George around here, and the new special is no different!! We loved making cards just like George does in the episode, using sponges cut into shapes to create heart stamps! See the instructions below to make your own Curious George inspired handmade Valentine’s cards! (click to print!)
This season of Curious George continues to focus on teaching preschoolers about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts, as well as use of the five senses (smell, taste, hearing, touch, and sight). The curious monkey’s adventures go in “Oh Deer.” When a hungry deer keeps nibbling on the flowers in George and Allie’s garden, George uses all of his five senses to keep the deer out. A scarecrow, loud noises, sticky tape, and stinky rotten eggs don’t work, leaving George with one last sense: taste! Will George’s recipe keep the deer away or make them hungry for more?
