Buddy, it’s time to start! Yaaaaaay! Today’s the day I’m going to be like Buddy, ’cause I know there’s nothing I can’t do. Today’s the day I’m going to be like Buddy! ‘Cause, today, I’m going to try something NEW! Huh? Playing with a friend? Yay! Buddy, what are you–? Are you playing freeze tag all by yourself? Uh, huh… Tag. You’re free. Now, Buddy, your friend, Ella’s coming over, and if you want to learn how to play with a friend, here’s how you can do it: Ask a friend to play. Uh, huh. Learn the rules, have fun playing, and finish playing nicely. Sometimes you won’t win or the game will end before you want it to, but being nice about it can help you play again later. Oooh! Ella’s here! Now you pick a game and meet us at the table and remember if you earn all your stars, we can play freeze tag, later. Hi, Buddy! Ahem. Please? Hypermonkey’s Treehouse? Yes, I’d love to play! Nice work, Buddy. You earned your first star! Ask a friend to play. Now, you have to learn the rules. How to play: the object of the game is to get to Hypermonkey’s Treehouse. To begin, each player picks a game piece and places it on the box that reads, “Start Here.” The youngest player goes first by spinning the spinner. Buddy, that’s you! The arrow will point to a number. The player must move his game piece forward that number of spaces and do what is written on his space he stops on. Act like a bird, Buddy! (Buddy tweets) Wait, Buddy. This is a turn-taking game. All the players take turns spinning and moving their game pieces, until one player moves into the treehouse, winning the game. So, now, it’s my turn! Do a hula dance? Hey, Hula and Birdie-I mean Ella and Buddy! Look, you’ve earned another star! Learn the rules. Let’s keep playing. It’s your turn, again! Great job, Buddy. Look, you’ve earned another star! Have fun playing. Keep going! I can’t wait to see who wins. Yay, I won! Congratulations, Ella! Buddy? Yay! High-five! Thanks, Buddy. And high-five, Buddy! You just earned your last star! Finish playing nicely. Buddy, you’ve earned all your stars! Now, you can ask Ella to play Freeze Tag! Unfreeze me, Buddy! Buddy? Well, I’m very proud of you, for how you learned how to play with a friend. Ask a friend to play, learn the rules, have fun playing, and finish playing nicely. I’m coming to get you! Unfreeze me, quick! There you are! Buddyyyyyyyyyyy! Great job, Buddy. You did it! Today’s the day I’m going to be like Buddy, ’cause I know there’s nothing I can’t do. Today’s the day I’m going to be like Buddy, ’cause today, I’m going to try something new!
