It’s Dancing with Dinosaurs Week!

Encore presentations of some of the most musical episodes of Dinosaur Train make for a week of dance-tastic adventures. Buddy, Shiny, Tiny and Don explore ponds, gardens, oceans and more in “That's Not a Dinosaur/Tiny's Garden,” “Remember the Alamosaurus/Sunrise, Sunset,” “Elmer Elasmosaurus/Dinosaur Block Party,” “Junior Conductor Jamboree/Troodon Train Day” and “Buddy Explores the Tyrannosaurs/Rainy Day Fight.” They sing and dance as they encourage kids to get outside, get into nature and make their own discoveries.  Dinosaur Train airs at 7:30am and 3:00pm each day on WPT.

Rain and snow are in the forecast for much of Wisconsin this week, so how about an indoor dance party?  In Friday’s episode, “Rainy Day Fight,” the kids are stuck cooped up in the nest for a long, rainy spell which leads to them fighting. The kids take time to find a “calm space” so they can get their emotions under control and get along again.  If too much togetherness starts to get to your kids, help them find their own calm space at home that they can go to for a break when cabin fever crabbiness sets in!

Kids can continue their exploration online with outdoor themed games, activities and videos available on PBSKIDS.org/outdoors and through the PBS KIDS Video App.

Parents can also find activities from the on-air episodes, listings for PBS KIDS Day in the Park events, and ideas and resources to explore the outdoors anytime on PBSParents.org/outdoors.
