Dragon Tales

Hide And Can't Seek/Art Of Patience

Season 2, Episode 17 of 25

Hide and Can't Seek - It's Doodle Fair Hide and Seek Day in Dragon Land, but Ord, who has a hard time with the game, isn't very excited. Ord doesn't hide because he's too busy watching everyone else, and once he's tagged, he has hardly begun to seek before everyone else is found. Slowly, Ord learns "seeking strategies." Emmy looks behind bushes, but takes a berry from each bush to remember which ones she's searched before. Emmy also explains to Ord that it's a good idea to look carefully in each spot but not keep looking in the same spot once you're sure no one is there. Cassie coaches Ord to search only in places that are big enough to accommodate a person (or a dragon). Ord eventually uses all the skills he's learned and finds a hiding Max. It's time to break for snacks, but - surprise! - Ord is so excited about his new skills that he wants to keep playing! The Art of Patience - It's Quetzal's birthday (a special day indeed), and the gang is patiently getting ready for his party. But Max can't stand it! He is ready to get the celebration started and is having trouble waiting. The gang explains that the color clay sculptures ( made especially for Quetzal) need time to dry and harden in the " color clay contraption." To impatient Max, this seems to be taking forever, so, he decides to open the lid only to discover that he has melted all the sculptures. Max feels terrible for ruining his friends' hard work, and offers to help them make new ones. First they have to get the clay, a process that takes time and requires more patience than Max can currently muster. But with the help of his friends, Max learns some fun tricks, like singing, that help him pass the time, and pretty soon he realizes that waiting isn't so hard, after all.
