Pig asked where they were going to have their picnic Kipper said they're heading to the wood he asked Arnold if he wants to hold his hand but instead he told him to lead them to the woods. At the wood Arnold played his drum still frighting some birds Tiger said it was nice druming but he said if he could do it more quietly then Tiger offers Arnold a sandwich, but Arnold is too busy playing to notice. Kipper said Pig's sandwitch was good and Pig told Tiger that the biscuits were good then he saw he should keep some for Arnold. Kipper then suggested Arnold could use drum as a table and asked if he liked a drink. Tiger was now happy there was no more noise. Soon Kipper,Tiger,and Pig tried to have an afternoon nap but were suddenly woken by Arnold's banging drum then Kipper saw a bug and showed it to Arnold and asked if they can make it a house.
