Blueberry celebrates end of summer with kite festival in new episode Friday on Arkansas PBS
Posted 09 Aug 2021
Young viewers will learn about compromise,
getting along with each other in ‘Blueberry’s Clubhouse’ season 2 finale
CONWAY, Ark. (Arkansas PBS) — “Blueberry’s Clubhouse: The Bothersome Brother” will premiere on Arkansas PBS Friday, Aug. 13, at 9:07 a.m. as part of the “Rise and Shine” summer learning program. Produced in partnership with the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts, the Arkansas PBS original pre-K-2 children's program features Blueberry, a curious puppet guide, and her friends at Camp Onomatopoeia participating in fun, engaging and insightful summer activities across The Natural State.
“Blueberry’s Clubhouse” will air on AR PBS-1, livestream at myarpbs.org/watchlive and be available on demand at myarpbs.org/blueberry and youtube.com/arkansaspbs, as well as in the Engage Arkansas PBS app and PBS Video app. An encore of “Blueberry’s Clubhouse: Season 2” will air Fridays, Aug. 20-Sept. 10, at 10 a.m. each week.
In this episode, Blueberry learns about kite-building, compromise and getting along with each other. Blueberry and Max are excited for the end of summer kite festival at camp – until Max’s step-brother, Miles, drops by for a visit. Blueberry looks for ways to ease this sibling rivalry so their kites can take to the skies.
To dig deeper together, Blueberry and viewers will:
- Go “Up, Up and Away!” when they learn about what the types of materials they need to make different kinds of kites soar with Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub’s Errin Stanger, Chris Jones, Adam Kittrell, Kendle Carter, Casey Jeffery and Adam McEvoy.
- Learn “How Does My Kite Fly?” and explore the forces at play that help kites take to the sky – plus, learn about how to make two types of kites – with Scott Family Amazeum's Alexandra Smith and Emerson Johnson.
- Sing mömandpöp’s new song “My Kite and I.”
Families can bring the fun of Camp Onomatopoeia home with printable activities – including a connect the dots and Blueberry mask – at myarpbs.org/blueberry.
“Blueberry’s Clubhouse: Season 2” was made possible, in part, by generous donations from June H. Williams of Little Rock and another special supporter to Arkansas PBS.
