0:03:030:03:07

ALL: We love animals, plants and birds

0:03:070:03:10

We love snails and slugs

0:03:100:03:12

Large and small, we love them all And we never, ever step on bugs

0:03:120:03:16

Cos we are the Green Balloon Club!

0:03:160:03:21

Sky, NOW can we open the Christmas tree?

0:03:210:03:25

I think the time has come.

0:03:250:03:27

Lily-Rose,

0:03:270:03:29

untie the string!

0:03:290:03:32

THEY CHEER

0:03:320:03:34

It's beautiful.

0:03:340:03:37

Look! Skipper likes the smell of the Christmas tree.

0:03:370:03:41

-I love the smell of Christmas trees.

-Sky, the tree's still in the pot,

0:03:410:03:46

-so is it still growing?

-That's right. It's got roots in there,

0:03:460:03:50

-so after Christmas, I'll plant it.

-So we can have Christmas

0:03:500:03:54

-all year?

-Yes!

0:03:540:03:56

Oh, it looks like there's a report coming in.

0:03:560:03:59

Who is it, Ant?

0:04:010:04:03

It's Alfie and May. ..Hello, there!

0:04:030:04:07

ALL: Hello!

0:04:070:04:09

-We're choosing our Christmas tree.

-Come on, let's get one.

0:04:090:04:13

'These are fir trees.

0:04:160:04:18

'Fir trees make good Christmas trees.

0:04:180:04:21

'They are green.

0:04:210:04:23

'And they come to a point at the top.

0:04:230:04:26

'These are pine needles.

0:04:260:04:29

'They are very prickly.'

0:04:290:04:31

This is the same size as me!

0:04:340:04:37

Oh, you didn't quite make it, did you?

0:04:390:04:41

'And this one's really small.'

0:04:410:04:44

-Get him!

-'I love running through the trees.'

0:04:440:04:48

We're having fun choosing our tree.

0:04:490:04:52

'We need a very tall tree for our house.'

0:04:520:04:54

What about this one?

0:04:570:04:59

-Yeah.

-Yeah?

0:04:590:05:00

Alfie, what do we put in this hole?

0:05:000:05:03

-The Christmas tree.

-The Christmas tree.

0:05:030:05:06

-What does it make the Christmas tree do?

-It makes it stand up.

0:05:060:05:10

It makes it stand up.

0:05:100:05:12

Put it down here.

0:05:120:05:14

There we go.

0:05:140:05:16

Watch. This man's going to wrap it up for us now, Alfie. Watch.

0:05:160:05:20

'This man is putting our tree into a net.'

0:05:260:05:30

'It's all covered in net now so we can take it home.'

0:05:340:05:38

We've got the tree home.

0:05:390:05:41

Daddy's cutting the netting off.

0:05:420:05:46

Wow!

0:05:520:05:53

Smells lovely! >

0:05:530:05:56

Let's decorate it.

CHRISTMAS MUSIC PLAYS

0:05:580:06:01

Can I have the star, May?

0:06:110:06:13

-OK, let's get it on the top, Alfie.

-Um...

-All the way to the top.

0:06:130:06:18

See if we can do it together.

0:06:180:06:20

-Ah!

-Wow!

0:06:230:06:26

I hope you like our Christmas tree.

0:06:370:06:40

ALL: Bye!

0:06:400:06:41

Right, I think I've got all the lights on the tree properly.

0:06:480:06:52

-Jay, would you like to turn them on?

-OK!

0:06:520:06:56

A-hem!

0:06:560:06:58

I hereby declare

0:06:580:07:00

that Crispin the Christmas tree

0:07:000:07:02

shall be alight!

0:07:020:07:05

It's beautiful!

0:07:070:07:10

-Let's make some decorations!

-ALL: Yeah!

0:07:100:07:13

Sky, I think my garden birds would like to nest in our Christmas tree.

0:07:150:07:20

That's a really good idea - shall I help you put them in?

0:07:200:07:23

Yes, please!

0:07:230:07:25

I'll put this...

0:07:250:07:28

..this blue tit here.

0:07:280:07:29

There you go, little goldfinch.

0:07:310:07:33

-Sky, you know when Alfie and May got their Christmas tree?

-Yes...

0:07:330:07:38

It was already cut down. Is it better to get a tree with roots?

0:07:380:07:44

It's all right to get one with roots if you have somewhere to plant it,

0:07:440:07:49

but one that's already cut is all right too.

0:07:490:07:52

You can recycle it afterwards.

0:07:520:07:54

-So either one is good?

-Definitely.

0:07:540:07:57

I love all Christmas trees,

0:07:570:07:59

because they're all so... Christmassy!

0:07:590:08:02

I think we should give my robins pride of place

0:08:070:08:11

-because they're the most Christmassy birds.

-Hmm...

0:08:110:08:14

How about...here?

0:08:140:08:17

Yes!

0:08:170:08:19

BOTH: Aww!

0:08:190:08:21

Me and Skipper have got something exciting to show you.

0:09:130:09:17

Over here, we have a fantastic Advent Calendar

0:09:170:09:21

which has been sent in by Katie, one of our Green Balloon Club members.

0:09:210:09:25

Look at the fantastic balloon.

0:09:250:09:28

It's really sparkly

0:09:280:09:30

and it's got 24 little doors - I wonder what's behind them.

0:09:300:09:34

And look, we've opened one with Jelly!

0:09:340:09:37

So thank you so much, Katie. We really appreciate it.

0:09:370:09:41

I know a cool way of making snowflakes.

0:09:410:09:44

Each take a pair of scissors and paper.

0:09:440:09:46

-Can I make one too?

-Of course.

-Thanks.

0:09:460:09:49

OK. First, you just fold it into a rectangle.

0:09:510:09:55

Then fold it into a square - that means over again.

0:09:570:10:00

Then fold it into a triangle,

0:10:060:10:08

so that when you open it, it looks like a diamond.

0:10:080:10:12

Then you have to use your scissors

0:10:150:10:18

and cut shapes around the side.

0:10:180:10:21

-Can you help me?

-Yes, what would you like?

0:10:230:10:28

I'd like to do a triangle.

0:10:280:10:30

A triangle. >

0:10:300:10:32

-What kind of shapes do we have to cut, Kat?

-Any kind you like.

0:10:320:10:37

-What shape would you like?

-Something like a love heart.

0:10:370:10:41

OK, I'll try.

0:10:410:10:43

Thanks.

0:10:480:10:50

-Have you guys ever made snowflakes before?

-I've made a circular one.

0:10:500:10:55

They don't look very good when you're cutting them out,

0:10:550:10:59

but then, when you open them up, they look wonderful.

0:10:590:11:03

I'll add something else to it, actually.

0:11:030:11:07

Is everyone nearly finished?

0:11:130:11:15

Yeah, I'm just helping Lily-Rose.

0:11:150:11:18

Then I'll be done.

0:11:210:11:23

There you are. OK, are we ready?

0:11:230:11:27

We'll go one by one.

0:11:270:11:28

Jay, you open yours up first.

0:11:280:11:31

That's brilliant!

0:11:340:11:36

Thanks.

0:11:370:11:39

Now yours, Kat.

0:11:390:11:41

Wow!

0:11:440:11:46

It really looks like a snowflake. Thanks.

0:11:470:11:49

Ant, that's fantastic!

0:11:540:11:56

Thanks, Jay.

0:11:560:11:57

Your turn...

0:11:570:11:59

-Lily-Rose, that's amazing!

-Thanks.

0:12:030:12:06

-It looks like an alien jewel.

-These are really pretty. Can I make one?

0:12:060:12:11

-Well, I was hoping you could laminate them.

-Laminate them?

0:12:110:12:15

That's a really clever idea!

0:12:150:12:17

-Would you like to help me?

-Yes.

0:12:170:12:20

I'll take those, thank you.

0:12:200:12:22

We'll cut out some more!

0:12:220:12:24

I'll switch it on and you can put them into the plastic sheets.

0:12:270:12:31

Put them there.

0:12:310:12:33

HORN BLOWS

0:12:370:12:39

Hey, I spy some Green Balloon Club members!

0:12:390:12:42

It's Zoe and George!

0:12:420:12:44

Hello!!

0:12:440:12:47

Hello! What are you up to?

0:12:470:12:50

We've come to see some special animals.

0:12:510:12:53

Can you guess what animals they might be?

0:12:530:12:57

We'll give you a clue - look at our heads.

0:12:570:13:00

Yes, we're excited. Come on, let's go.

0:13:020:13:05

MUSIC: Jingle Bells

0:13:050:13:10

This is Mike - he's a reindeer handler.

0:13:210:13:25

He'll be showing us the reindeer today.

0:13:250:13:29

They don't usually live in this country

0:13:300:13:34

and we are very lucky to see them.

0:13:340:13:36

Reindeer are large deer

0:13:380:13:40

adapted to living in places which is cold and snowy.

0:13:400:13:45

They have shaggy coats with two layers of fur -

0:13:450:13:48

a woolly undercoat and a longer-haired overcoat

0:13:480:13:53

to keep them warm when it gets cold.

0:13:530:13:56

Their coat is a greyish-brown colour during the winter

0:13:590:14:03

and a dark brown in the summer.

0:14:030:14:06

Male and female reindeers both have antlers.

0:14:090:14:13

Males' antlers are bigger than the females' antlers.

0:14:130:14:17

-This is my favourite one.

-Is he?

0:14:200:14:23

I'm not food!

0:14:260:14:27

And she's not food!

0:14:290:14:31

At this time of year,

0:14:320:14:34

the male reindeer start to lose their antlers.

0:14:340:14:38

The old pair drops out

0:14:380:14:41

and the new set begins to grow.

0:14:410:14:44

By the summer, the new antlers are fully grown

0:14:440:14:48

and covered in soft velvet.

0:14:480:14:51

The velvet starts to shed in the autumn.

0:14:510:14:54

And when it's Christmas time again,

0:14:540:14:57

the antlers drop off and the whole cycle starts again.

0:14:570:15:00

These baby reindeer were born in May.

0:15:020:15:06

They're about six months old.

0:15:060:15:08

Look - even the baby reindeer has antlers.

0:15:080:15:11

Reindeer eat barn straw, pellets and grass when they're out in the field.

0:15:130:15:18

It's time for all the reindeer to be fed.

0:15:200:15:23

Mike has given us some reindeer pellets.

0:15:230:15:27

This one is really enjoying its food.

0:15:310:15:35

We have been so lucky today to see some reindeers.

0:15:470:15:51

I wonder if they've pulled Father Christmas...

0:15:510:15:54

It's time for us to go now. Thank you for visiting the reindeers with us.

0:16:050:16:10

BOTH: Bye!

0:16:100:16:12

-They're so lucky to see a reindeer. I'd love to see one.

-Me too.

0:16:160:16:21

Look, Sky, they're coming out!

0:16:210:16:23

This was a really good idea. I think they'll look beautiful on the tree.

0:16:230:16:28

-Can I put the next sheet in?

-No, I should do this - it gets very hot.

0:16:280:16:34

Why don't you cut these out?

0:16:340:16:37

-I can hang them on the tree with the ribbons.

-Yes.

0:16:370:16:40

-Why don't you find some in the bits' box?

-Yeah.

0:16:400:16:43

There you go.

0:16:430:16:45

Look, Skipper -

0:17:030:17:05

the reindeer are on our website.

0:17:050:17:07

It could be this week's password.

0:17:070:17:09

Or it could be the robin.

0:17:090:17:12

Hmm, this is hard.

0:17:130:17:15

The Christmassy robin or the Christmassy reindeer.

0:17:150:17:18

Which do you think? The robin or the reindeer?

0:17:180:17:22

The reindeer? OK.

0:17:240:17:26

Yes!

0:17:270:17:28

So, to get into our Green Balloon Club website,

0:17:280:17:31

this week's secret picture password is the reindeer.

0:17:310:17:35

What would you like to see, now that we're into the site?

0:17:350:17:39

We could go and have a look through the telescope

0:17:390:17:43

or look at our online scrapbook...

0:17:430:17:46

Welcome to your online nature scrapbook.

0:17:460:17:49

If you're stuck, click on me.

0:17:490:17:51

Or do some colouring.

0:17:510:17:53

If we click here, we could listen to Green Balloon Club on CBeebies radio.

0:17:540:18:00

Or we can watch all our songs here...

0:18:000:18:03

What shall we choose, Skipper?

0:18:040:18:07

I know - I'll think I'll find a picture for me and you to colour in.

0:18:080:18:13

I think I'll choose the ladybird for us.

0:18:130:18:16

How about that, Skipper?

0:18:160:18:19

HORN PLAYS

0:18:190:18:20

I spy some Green Balloon Club members!

0:18:200:18:23

It must be time for the Spot Of The Week.

0:18:230:18:26

If you're birdwatching this weekend, look out for this week's spot.

0:18:300:18:35

We spotted one earlier, so here are some clues to help you spot one.

0:18:350:18:40

It's the robin.

0:18:400:18:42

A robin is a little brown bird

0:18:420:18:45

with a bright red breast.

0:18:450:18:48

They are very friendly

0:18:480:18:50

and like eating insects and worms.

0:18:500:18:53

They are very protective of where they live,

0:18:530:18:57

and scare other robins away.

0:18:570:18:59

If you see two together, they're getting ready to make a nest.

0:18:590:19:03

So here are some clues to help YOU spot one.

0:19:030:19:06

A robin is a little brown bird with a bright red breast.

0:19:060:19:11

They are very friendly

0:19:110:19:13

and like eating insects and worms.

0:19:130:19:15

Now, YOU find one!

0:19:150:19:17

If you manage to spot a robin this week -

0:19:230:19:26

not on your Christmas cards and not on your Christmas tree,

0:19:260:19:30

but a real one -

0:19:300:19:31

then you can give yourself a green star.

0:19:310:19:34

I think our tree looks SO pretty!

0:19:340:19:37

Those snowflakes look fantastic!

0:19:370:19:41

Our mini Christmas trees look brilliant under here.

0:19:410:19:44

Maybe we can make some more decorations now.

0:19:440:19:47

Perhaps some robins!

0:19:470:19:50

Sorry to stop you, but we're coming in to land!

0:19:500:19:53

And wherever we land...

0:19:570:19:59

ALL: ..it's time for a song!
