Daniel Tiger is playing in the snow with Prince Wednesday when Dad Tiger suggests a trip to the skating pond. In order to get to the pond, the boys must sled down a steep hill which causes them both to be a little nervous. Dad Tiger encourages them to go down a little bit at a time which makes the larger task more managable. After sledding a small section of the hill, Daniel and Prince Wednesday have fun trying again -- starting higher each time.

Daniel make-believes that he is sledding down a "super-fast racing sled."

At the bottom of the hill, Miss Elaina is skating on the pond. Having never ice skated before, Daniel is nervous about trying. Dad Tiger teaches Daniel to skate -- taking things one step at a time. Even though Daniel falls, he still gets up and tries again.

When Margaret and Mom Tiger arrive at the pond, Margaret takes her first steps -- trying something new just like her big brother.


  • "If something seems hard to do, try it a little bit at a time."
