Make Music Naturally - The kids learn that Senor Tapir is putting on a concert. They want to participate, but don't have any instruments. After hearing all of the beautiful sounds around them in nature, Elinor realizes that they can make their own by listening to nature. Senor Tapir is thrilled with their natural, handmade instruments, and together they perform a song about making music - naturally. Light the Way - The kids are having a backyard camp out, but after Elinor's Dad falls asleep, they need to find a way to communicate quietly without waking him. As they observe some fireflies, the kids see how the fireflies signal to one another by lighting up, and realize they can do that with their flashlights. They blink their flashlights on and off as a way to communicate while being quiet. Shhh!
