No-Go Mofongo

Mami whips up some mofongo for the family cookout using an old recipe from Alma’s great-grandmother. But when Alma sneaks a taste, she realizes it’s a “no-go” and tries to fix it by herself since Mami is so busy. Too bad she made it worse. Can Alma fix the mofongo in time for dinner?

Alma vs Eddie – The City Seagulls are playing the Sweat Sox

That means it’s time for rival baseball fans, Papi and Abuelo, to prank each other all day! Alma and Eddie think the pranks are hi-lar-i-ous and decide to play some of their own on each other. At first, they’re both having fun, but after a while, Eddie doesn’t look like he’s enjoying himself as much as Alma. What gives?

WPSU PBS Kids Adventure Pack

Calling All PBS Kids!

When your family makes a gift of $6 per month, we’ll send to you, as our thanks, a backpack full of materials that your family can use with WPSU’s virtual summer camp!

Your gift will help to make educational children’s programming possible for all of our friends across the WPSU viewing area.

Backpack Package

This pledge premium is a backpack with 8 weeks of themed activities and some basic summer supplies like pencils, kids’ scissors, glue sticks, construction paper, and journals. Each week’s WPSU Virtual Summer Camp with Kate will feature a lesson on that week’s theme, an activity related to that theme, and links to PBS KIDS games, pages, and videos. Weekly themed activities will include making a bird feeder, building an “ant hill,” and germinating beans to watch them grow. Some of the other things that will be in the backpack include, paints, cotton balls, pipecleaners, twine, modeling clay, and a plastic petri dish.

Sponsor a Backpack

With school out until fall, keeping up through summer learning is more important than ever. You can choose to increase your gift to receive two backpacks. We will send you both backpacks and you can choose where it goes, whether it is directly to someone you know or donated to a food bank, a library, a church, free school lunch program, or other entity.
