With Daniel's help, Prince Tuesday puts Margaret to bed. After a countdown to calm down, Margaret quickly finds herself ready to rest.

Back in the living room, Daniel and Prince Wednesday enjoy their indoor camp-out. Daniel make-believes that he is really camping in the forrest.

After playing, it's time to sleep and Prince Tuesday helps Daniel and Wednesday calm down. He gives them a variety of glow-in-the-dark star stickers to place inside the tent before sharing a bedtime song with them. They are disturbed, however, when Margaret wakes up and begins to cry. Once she is back to sleep, everyone calms down again.
