We hope you have a roaring good time with Page Turner, Kenny, and their friends and special guests!

SHOW DAY: SOFA SAFARI GAME SHOW

Sofa Safari Game Show with kid contestants

What animal eats upside down? How many hearts does an octopus have? Can you hop as high as a kangaroo?

These questions and more will be answered during the Sofa Safari Game Show, the interactive show that takes you on a safari without leaving your sofa!

CRAFT DAY: JUNGLE SAFARI FLASHLIGHT CRAFT

This week’s project is to make something that’s part craft and part optical illusion.

You’ll need a clear sealing storage bag (Ziploc or any other brand), black and white construction paper, and permanent markers to make this jungle safari project.

ILLUSTRATOR DAY: DAVID DEPASQUALE
