Episode Description: Bluey and Bingo want a pet. To show them how much work they’d be in for, Dad transforms his hand into their old friend Shaun, a chaotic, undisciplined Emu with a taste for trouble.


  • There are lots of pretend play variations you can do on taking care of a pet, whether you’re in the role, another child or a stuffed toy. Perhaps if you have any plastic “pets” the kids can give them a “bath” in the tub/sink/bucket outside.
  • You could also make a “Shaun” hand puppet. Depending on your resources and skill level you could:

Sew a Felt Puppet
Craft a Paper Bag Puppet
Make a Good Ol’ Fashioned Sock Puppet

While none of those links are specifically for emus, I’m sure you can get creative – maybe you have some feathers lying around from playing Featherwand?
