To help Pinky the puppy feel more at home, Pinkalicious™ and her brother, Peterrific™, pretend to be dogs in this video excerpt from the PBS KIDS series PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC™. As Pinkalicious and Peterrific try to understand what it might be like to be puppies, they enjoy crawling, howling, and "chasing" a cat. Role playing and make-believe are two essential elements of dramatic play, an important part of children's creative development. This resource is part of the PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC™ Collection

Art can be made from a variety of materials, as Pinkalicious™ and her family reveal in this video excerpt from the PBS KIDS series PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC™. When a rainstorm interrupts their backyard camp out, Pinkalicious and her brother, Peter, recreate the outdoors in their living room. They use their imaginations and, with their parents' help, combine drawing, painting, and found objects to make a new environment for a "camp-in."

Music can be made anywhere and anytime, as Pinkalicious™ reveals in this video excerpt from the PBS KIDS series PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC™. Pinkalicious wants to create the "best marching band ever," and she doesn't let the lack of actual instruments (except for a real recorder) deter her. She invites her friends to play make-believe instruments, using just their imagination and their voices. Imitating the glockenspiel, trombone, and tuba, Pinkalicious, her little brother, Peterrific™, and friends Jasmine and Rafael form their very own version of a marching band.

Dance can take many forms, as Pinkalicious™ and her brother, Peterrific™, discover in this video excerpt from the PBS KIDS series PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC™. Delighted with Robotta, the robot that they have made, Pinkalicious and Peterrific decide to imitate her by matching Robotta's movements.

Art can be made in unexpected ways, as Pinkalicious™ learns in this video from the PBS KIDS series PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC™. It’s her father’s birthday, and Pinkalicious uses paint and paper from her “make things” box to make some very special wrapping paper. When her brother Peter bumps into her and the paint splatters, Pinkalicious thinks her art project is ruined. She soon discovers that creativity and an open mind can turn “mistakes” into something wonderful. This resource is part of the PINKALICIOUS & PETERRIFIC™ Collection.
