Episode Format

Every episode has the following sequence:

  • Mister Maker has a Creative Idea - For Your Art And Crafts.
  • The Shapes Dance - Dancing The Shapes & Games.
  • Minute Make It Time - Just 1 Minute Arts & Crafts.
  • The Colour Kids make a picture - All Color Your Big Art.
  • Frame-It! - For Your Drawing & Art.
  • One more Creative Idea is demonstrated - About Looking Idea Art.
  • Time To Go - Meet Tocky.
  • Clean Elements - For Recycle.
  • Black Bar with 380 seconds - Start With Recycle Craft

Note:Mister Maker does something interesting and that gives him an idea of what to make. He collects the required things from the Doodle drawers or an art and craft shop and makes it. Then he wakes up the shapes who perform a song and a dance, followed by a randomly selected shape (circle, triangle, square or rectangle) to form a picture or to find how many (particular shape) are there. Tocky the cuckoo clock (a puppet bird), then pops out for Minute Make Time and Mister Maker will make something in a minute, usually completing it just before the timer stops. The colour kids (Jodie Griffiths, Olivia Lockett, Mackenzie Roylance, Georgia Pickles and Amy Lees) will ask from the window to Mister Maker to guess what they would make with their 'colour costumes'. It is followed by Frame It where Mister Maker makes something 'ever so good' that the viewers will be able to frame it. Mister Maker will be confronted by something, and that will give him an idea on what to make next. The show then ends showing credits and Mister Maker putting everything back into the art box and reminding viewers to go on the CBeebies website.
