|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers changes into an apron and goes to the kitchen where he takes out egg dying materials from the paper bag he has brought with him. Using eggs from the refrigerator, he decorates a few using the colorful dyes.Taking the eggs to the porch to dry, Mister Rogers runs into Audrey Roth who offers to show him her own collection of decorative eggs.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin and Handyman Negri would like to decorate eggs for their friends and ask Edgar Cooke for some hard-boiled eggs. Fresh off the stove, the eggs are very hot so Lady Aberlin and Handyman Negri blow on them to cool them off -- whistling as they blow. When King Friday XIII joins them, he also blows on the the eggs -- whistling quite beautifully in the process. He explains that he became a good whislter by talking with the birds in the royal forrest as a young boy.
Back at the house, Audrey returns with her collection of decorative eggs. She helps Mister Rogers as they clean up the egg dying materials from earlier.
