With 2 toddlers who can be mischievous at times we enjoy watching Curious George as we can relate to a lot of his silly shenanigans. Now that our favorite little monkey is swinging into our home, on Hulu, we can watch all 9 seasons (108 episodes) of the animated TV series (as well as the animated film Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey) whenever we want to!
Aimed at preschool viewers this cute series inspires children to explore science, engineering, and math in the world around them. Here’s a peek of why my kids love this little monkey!
Curious George encourages us to think outside the box with downtime so this weekend we tried something new and made Curious George charms with “magic shrinking paper” as my 3-year old called it.
Inspired by George’s red shirt, The Man With The Yellow Hat’s hat and George’s brown fur, we made a red, yellow and brown bracelet and paired it with a cute picture of George wearing said hat!
To make your own you’ll need:
- Shrinky Dink paper
- Permanent Markers
- Curious George pictures
- Jewelry Beads, Rings and Clasps
- Stretchy String
- Needlenose Pliers
- After printing out your favorite pictures of George, place a piece of tape to secure to Shrinky Dink paper over pictures..
2. Using a thin permanent marker, trace over George images.
3. Color pictures in.
4. Hole punch and cut around images. Bake according to package directions.
5. String stretchy string through beads until desired bracelet length and cut.
6. Using jewelry making pieces and needlenose pliers, place ring through the hole punch on the charm. Place ring around the clasp and hook to the charm ring. Clip to bracelet. Viola!
Pretty easy and pretty cute! All little Curious George falls will love these handmade charms. They are also cute on a keychain, zipper pull or on a backpack!
Our adorable plush George is sporting his new bling! ;)
