I have always enjoyed reading Pinkalicious books with my kids, and watching the Pinkalious & Peterrific cartoon on PBS Kids! We are very excited about the new Valentine’s Day Celebration this week with new episodes of one of our favorite cartoons!
Premieres February 12

“Royal Peacock Dance”
Pinkalicious’ class is putting on a dance recital and whoever has the best posture gets to wear the Royal Peacock Crown! Rafael and Pinkalicious practice by balancing a stack of precious objects on their heads, including Mommy’s favorite tea cups. Who will get to be the Royal Peacock?

Curriculum: Visual Arts – Experimenting with different materials and tools to make art.
With Mommy’s latest invention, the Opera-matic, anything you say sounds like opera! Pinkalicious, Peter and their friends have fun playing with it — until the machine suddenly breaks and they have to sing their very own operatic apology to Mommy.
