Any. Presentation of this program is made possible in part by a grant from General Foods corporation and by public television stations and a grant from the Ford Foundation. Man. Oh man.
Dome is made possible by grants from McDonald's Corporation and McDonald's restaurants Fund and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Do you know how do we know in Spanish about our hair on our. Hair. Was. Cut that. Was
was gonna cut. Was going to cut there. Was a guy that was. Trying to. Was. Like yeah. I can't. Call it off. And dammit what a lovely family that would be. Almost everybody but lots of people are going to show you. First you take a call.
I knew it was cold water. And bring it out. Yeah the center looks like this. Take a break. I like. Two or three. Take a military spray. And double it. And go about it inch inch and a half or so by the. Kite again. And keep on top of it until you have five or six dots that looks like this
bed you dip it in the lightest I first. Leave it until it starts to the do water because when you take it out you read mostly color and. The reason you rinse it is to get out all the excess die because if you don't fill Rudd with the next call you to put it there take off to Craigs and put out two other ones in a different place. Then. Take it next lightest. And put out the hot plate to keep warm. Make sure that it doesn't boil. As if it doesn't feel the same thing. Rinse it take off and put on new strings. You usually do three dies because if you use more than three it usually gets too dark and if you use less. Light. One of the hardest things about the strange.
Phenomenon. What's. Going on. Hang on. You'll see. OK. Do you think that you can slice a banana cleanly in half without it. OK you're right. I know you probably just don't want to just just just watch this. Was precut home on this show you know you don't want a piece of banana.
Yeah OK let me get with what you do is take it a little bit. Oh you can use so it. Just just just just not calling. And what you do. Is you take the needle and you know like the ridges here. You put the needle for one. To the other that I. Have to do. Yeah. To get it. Right. I. Want this. You mean.
I don't. Have a weakness so. That's how you do it. If it was that was ok years ago sent in by Peter Pan as of Newark New Jersey and he says there's no. Here's something gold card on the head to do it. You have to have a string and a card tied to the string. Now what would the end of the string in your mouth when your head to the left and right and try to make the car away and stay on your head. Can anyone do it. I don't know I got it from the card on the string wrapped around. Them. You have yet to catch on yet. Yeah it is. Yeah.
Yeah. Oh my just not. Anything like a. Book. For a good school like kids. No you shouldn't you should. Don't you know. What. I. Think about something you know you know. You just feel like you.
Have to. Another way to tie dye is to what I call the paper airplane. First of all you bring the cornerstone you. Up and. Back an inch. What are your top three. Make sure they're very tight. With the strings about an inch apart so that they don't run together. Your design looks a lot better right. Then you do the same thing as before take off the streets and put under
strips in different places and then the next stuff. You know I folded like a paper airplane I bet it will look like one. That's below the expected with the fall pelicans and elephants are one thing. What a lovely profit that would be. Here's a goodie that's called banana on a stick and what you need is a banana or some popsicle sticks and chocolates or an either or some coconut or some you know or or some chopped nuts. What you do is oh and you better. Put down some paper towels or some wax paper or something like that because this is a
messy one. What you do is you take it in there and you peel it close though. Then you take a knife and you couldn't half. There. Then you take a popsicle stick and you sticking stick it in the flat and of the banana or the half then you take it and you stick it in your chocolate syrup. Then you let it trip there a little while. So Jack several fall into the bucket. Then if I love you pop a popsicle stick. You just hold it when you think yours and you take it in you can put it right in the coconut. Oh good Noah.
Or the chopped nuts. But put it in there because I like that the best. In you rather. They take it out and you put back on your popsicle stick. Then you and that's it you often end on a stick. Of all ants and elephant to one saying what a home plate and to fans that would be. Another way to do time I used to learn this is a very simple way because all you have produced. But it's also hard because it's hard to. Take it. You can turn the dogs anywhere you want. But be sure that you told them very tight. It doesn't matter how many dots you put in.
It's really up to you how you want to. Take all the looks like this. If you want to learn how to make a sunburst or an airplane or not time write back 3 5 0 0 2 1 3 4 and don't forget. To include a self addressed stamped envelope. Here's a letter sent in by Callan of New York New York. She lights tears of I noticed that you always say to get a sound card. Send us softer drest stamped envelope. Well I don't think some kids understand what that is. So why don't you explain what you mean. OK. Saying this is your letter
addressed before you seal it up take another note below. Joyner your address and a stamp on it to do with your letter. And so on the whole works does it out. So we can send you assume God. And you. Didn't have to say. That. Thought will frighten the. Worker. When you know. That you. Can't. Some people think girls play rough sports but we're all on the girl's hockey team Nashville Massachusetts. My people used to laugh at the idea of girls playing hockey but a lot of us want to play a couple years ago. One of my finest.
Oh yeah. And you know. What. Usually we sometimes. We didn't. Mind the. One game trip.
There are no hard in the park. All right. Let's get out there and have a good. Boy. But. I am. I am. I am. I am. I think. In the way.
That. Good girls in the house. I don't think it's a family for the girls to play. They should too if they want to. I am. To follow up with them so the boys. Had a betting. Man. I am. Thinking the family when you play hockey I think you just have to forget about that and just play hockey. My sister used to go early and the boys. Don't want to hear and I think
that if we. Were moved by force you feel much. Pride. I think when we play the boys who do play action not just to win the game but to show that we can point to. The. Man. On the floor and my boys of course. Don't. Know that we don't want one called don't want. To. Think. You know yeah don't ever go play football against boys. Well I mean like.
Yeah I want I get so bad and I know the man would be a man would. I mean really you know they'd kill him. I mean really I mean you know. Boys are really rough. Yes I am. I like and some schools think they make the boys you know the boys but the boys sports are more important than the girl's voice and like if two people have like. In the same gym or something probably let the boys play because you know what I do anything I don't have anymore things that happen there must be the girls in my school play whole different sports from what you like I hear X you have a little fight the boys play. We're going to play football hockey basketball whatever you want a boy stuff like softball and volleyball more like so I just want to live oh yeah oh it's rough I know you see the Japanese woman for the Olympics have any of them die on the ID
smash you threw the last claim up or I don't like to kill themselves just just when I was I think soccer girls a better idea. They know it's real fun. Phil talk to you. I do put Phil talk in my life to get those wooden sticks they came through yes I'm thinking of tools to get left here right. And the kids are pretty good. I mean they're really good I want to see them fly down to guard. The point. Would all four girls are pretty good that they're good pretty good and we really don't get it. Girls are just as good as boys so we took the boys on in the game called me. Like. I might. Actually.
Get a check of. What's going on. Oh.
My. God. Shut. Up. You would stand there every day. The boys. Said to me Are you starting. Out. Only.
What Ruth. Told. Us. To. Kelly. Just what to do. Just getting sick. Was. On. FaceTime. Why did you do it. And

Series Description
"ZOOM is a children's show comprised of weekly half-hour episodes which showed what youngsters do and think. Seven ZOOMers hosted each episdoe, and the cast changed over run of series. ZOOM premiered locally as ""Summer-Do"" in 1970, and premiered nationally in January 1972. ZOOMers played games, told jokes, riddles (called Fannee Doolees) and stories and did crafts projects...and invited ideas from their audience. The result was an avalanche of ZOOMmail - in the first season, over 200,000 letters. Additionally, the Ubbi Dubbi language was invented by ZOOM."
