make pie like a samurai.

One funny thing about watching television is this; you're just sitting there on your rump while the characters you're viewing are doing rad stuff.

It's actually very rare that a "don't try this at home" warning flashes across the screen. So that means virtually anything else we could totally try at home, right? Ok, maybe that's taking things too far, but we can certainly do anything we see on "The Backyardigans."

We dressed up in our Samurai gear using whatever we could find (Iggy's mask is a tank-top, with a rubber-band around the excess fabric.)

We warmed up by throwing pie-tins around the house.

We even yelled "PIE-YUH" as we cut the butter.

TV can help in the creative parenting department, people. Behind the shows are writers who seriously plot things for the characters to do; things that little kids would want to do themselves. And why couldn't they? Thanks, writers!

Now Duke and I are probably going to have to pretend to freeze time and fly since we've been watching "Heroes" so much, haha.

What a great post! It's true, the writers of t.v. shows put a lot of work into entertaining our children, it's time we capitalized on it as well. Good luck on the freezing time and flying, I look forward to seeing those pictures!
