Mister Rogers plays with clay and then visits potter, Bill Strickland. They make a pot together at the potter's wheel. In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the Queen admires the King's portrait Miss Paulificate has made on the back of a jacket, and Lady Elaine uses her boomerang magic to cover all the portraits with play clay. Mister Rogers talks about how we can use all kinds of art to express how we feel.
Mister Rogers talks in a way young children understand, at a pace they can absorb and with a consistency that creates a calm, safe place for preschoolers. Topics with sensitive emotional concerns are always carefully blended with fun and whimsy to match a young child's interests and level of understanding.
