We received a screener and activity pack for the upcoming Curious George Swings into Spring (Official Press Release Link) one hour Earth Day Special that will air on PBS on Monday April 22, 2013. Of all the Curious George screeners I’ve received I am most impressed by this special. In the show Spring has arrived and George is feeling Spring Fever. The Man in the Yellow Hat takes him to the park and shows him many signs of Spring arriving. George wants to share that with Hundley the doorman’s dog but Hundley isn’t enjoying any of it. Through a series of events Hundley goes with George and the Man in the Yellow Hat to the country. There Hundley is even more unhappy, he misses the order of the apartment building and doesn’t like Spring. Eventually Hundley learns to enjoy everything about Spring.
In the activity pack there were some fun Earth Day/Curious George Activities. The activity pack contained the materials that you can print out as well and also a few extra things like sunflower seeds for the bird feeder, tomato seeds, pencils, crayons and chopsticks. I’ll give those items to Eva on Earth Day so we can do the activities like make a bird feeder. You can download the paper materials and instructions below (Links go off site).

Disclosure: I received a screener and activity pack for this special so that I could try it out and review it. I am a PBS Kids VIP (Very Involved Parent). Opinions are 100% my own.
