Characters Present


Blue cannot decide what to do today. Mr. Salt encourages Blue and Steve to pick a few items from around the house and use their imaginations to invent something new to do with them.


The episode begins with Steve trying to figure out what Blue wants to do. Mr. Salt overhears this and he and Mrs. Pepper tell them about the "Something To Do Stew". They just pick three things and make something new out of them. They give a sponge, paint, and paper. The viewer tells Steve sponge-painting. Steve paint with the sponge onto the paper. Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper clean up the things and go to put the paper on the fridge. Then the game begins after Steve asks Blue if she wanted to try out the "Something To Do Stew".
