As the American Thanksgiving holiday approaches, PBS Kids Sprout is kicking off its Thanks-For-Giving celebration on Monday, November 23.
Sean and his puppet friend Chica the Chicken from The Sunny Side Up Show will thank important community helpers who make everyone’s lives better and safer, including teachers, policemen and farmers, among others. Sprout viewers can send in notes, videos and artwork about people in their lives for whom they are thankful by heading over to SproutOnline.com and submissions will be featured on-air throughout the week.
On Thanksgiving Day, parents and preschoolers can call in live to The Sunny Side Up Show between 9 a.m. and noon ET and share their thoughts on why they are thankful this season. Meanwhile, viewers can tune-in for the premier of a new Thanksgiving Good Night show episode at 6 p.m. ET. More details are available at SproutOnline.com, along with Thanksgiving crafts.
The kidnet is also in its second year of the Great Sprout Tuck-In campaign, which benefits the national Pajama Program, delivering new pajamas and books to children in need across the US. Sprout is encouraging viewers to visit SproutOnline.com to learn more about how families can host their own pajama parties and donation drives. The Great Sprout Tuck-In is being sponsored for the second consecutive year by Johnson’s Bedtime Bath and Bedtime Lotion.
