Mister Rogers talks about the difference between flowers and flour. In the kitchen, he uses a flour and water paste to draw a picture of a flower on construction paper. Sand is sprinkled on the paste to solidify the drawing. Mister Rogers talks about how he would make similar drawings for his mother when he was a boy.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, everyone is invited to the castle's M Room to present Mr. Appel with their gifts. Lady Elaine Fairchilde plans to expose King Friday for not making a direct contribution to the King Friday Queen Sara Saturday Royal Foundation for the Performing Arts (KFQSSRFFTPA) even though he has more than anyone.

Mr. Appel is welcomed to the M Room where he is named as first recipeient of support through the KFQSSRFFTPA. The gifts are presented and King Friday surprises Lady Elaine when he gives Mr. Appel a new magician's cape hemmed by Mr. Frazier with a gold braid. Wearing his new cape, Mr. Appel performs a magic trick for his Neighborhood friends.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers visits Brockett's Bakery where Chef Brockett is using cookie cutters make cookies in various shapes.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers uses the leftover paste to make another picture.

    • Medical care when needed - Dr. Bill Platypus
    • Pomme frites when requested - Grandpere - pomme frites
    • A bed for when the Appels visit - Lady Elaine Fairchilde

  • It's Such a Good Feeling plays in the background as the episode transitions to the bakery. It also plays after Mister Rogers singsThe Weekend Song and continues as the episodes moves into the credits.
