WUCF TV’s annual Be My Neighbor Day event will celebrate kindness through February with a Daniel Tiger TV special, online activities and virtual events.
GRR-IFIC Neighbors with Daniel Tiger! will air Feb. 27 and 28 at 8:30 and 10 a.m. Viewers can join Daniel Tiger and his friends as they celebrate what it means to be a caring neighbor.
All month, fans can download or pick up a kindness kit that includes at-home activities for celebrating kindness and what it means to be a caring neighbor. Kits can be printed at home or picked up at a local library while supplies last. Visit wucf.org/bemyneighborday to print the kit or find out a location for pickup.
WUCF will host two interactive Virtual LIVE PBS KIDS events that explore the world using the senses on Feb. 11 and 13 at 10 a.m. Both sessions include videos and hands-on activities. A downloadable participant kit is available that includes gather-at-home materials and printables for the event. Registration is required by signing up at wucf.org/events.
“Even if we can’t be out interacting with the community for Be My Neighbor Day as we normally do, WUCF is happy to continue sharing Daniel Tiger’s message on how to be a caring neighbor and sharing kindness through our locally produced show, virtual events and activities,” says Phil Hoffman, WUCF’s executive director. “As Central Florida Storytellers, WUCF continues to encourage curiosity and learning through our virtual Be My Neighbor Day event.”
Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood is one of PBS’ most popular animated programs and airs weekdays at 10 a.m. and weekends at 7:30 a.m. on WUCF.
