Nick Jr. Holiday Specials and Activities 2011
This year, all of your kids’ favorite shows have holiday- themed specials airing. There are also many holiday- themed crafts that your little ones can enjoy. Here are a few Christmas- themed ideas from Nick Jr. that you should check out:
Dora’s Christmas Carol Adventure
Dora the Explorer’s holiday classic has returned! If you watched it last year, then you already know that your kids will love to see Dora in action in this Christmas- themed special. Swiper the Fox has swiped one too many times- putting him on the naughty list! Dora, being the great friend that she is, asks Santa if there’s any way they can help Swiper make it back to the nice list- leading them to an adventure filled with trips to the past to help him amend his ways. Will Dora help Swiper succeed? Will Swiper make it off the naughty list? You’ll have to watch the episode to find out!
Bubble Guppies: Happy Holidays, Mr. Grumpfish!
A new Bubble Guppies holiday show, Happy Holidays, Mr. Grumpfish stars all of the guppies as they prepare to celebrate the holiday season. Caroling, baking cookies, and spreading merriment and cheer are just a few of their activities. There’s also a big holiday party planned for the entire town! Everyone will be there- except grumpy Mr. Grumpfish, who refuses to celebrate with the town! The Bubble Guppies have to find a way to get Mr. Grumpfish to be happy again- if they can. What is it that makes Mr. Grumpfish so grumpy? If they can find out, perhaps they can figure out how to get him into the holiday spirit!
Make ornaments for the Christmas tree! This simple origami craft lets your child use their “pattern powers” to construct cute and festive Christmas ornaments that can be hung on a tree or strung on a banner.
Dora Holiday Felt Stocking
Your little one can make their very own Christmas stocking to hold special gifts from Santa! This simple craft uses fabric glue, felt, and self- adhesive stickers making it super easy to create a masterpiece your child will love!
Bubble Guppies Paper Chain Tree
This simple craft uses construction paper to make a paper chain tree to decorate with your favorite Bubble Guppies ornaments (directions for those are on the website, too)! Hang it on the wall using tape or a push pin!
