With images I downloaded online, I created this memory game which you can download from here. Just print the A4 sheets out on 300gm paper, cut them out and laminate them if you wish. These game cards can be used over and over again.
Swiper No Swiping!
Get the kids to role-play the characters in the show and the Mum will pretend to be Swiper, going round taking things from the girls. While approaching the toys Swiper is aiming for, Swiper will go at slow motion towards it while the kids will attempt to stop Swiper by shouting “Swiper no swiping! Swiper no swiping!” This of course scare Swiper away and the kids will cheer as they’d protected their toys from being taken away.

With the help of the audience, Map, Backpack, Boots, Diego and their courageous friends, Dora uses her map-reading, counting, musical and language skills to successfully pass through the number pyramid and the mixed-up jungle to reach the City of Lost Toys.

If you are still scratching your head on who’s who in the show, here’s a character list for your reference. Don’t let your kids outsmart you when catching the stage show!
Dora The Explorer Characters
Dora Marquez is the main character. She is an adorable, sweet, young and very beautiful Latina tomboy who embarks on a trip in every episode in order to find something or help somebody. She’s 7 years old.
Boots is a character who Dora met one day in the forest, is her best friend. He is friendly and enthusiastic, and usually wears his beloved red boots, hence his name. He is light blue with a yellow stomach and yellow tipped tail. His parents look similar, with variations in eyes, height, clothing, and fur. Boots is present with Dora on most of her adventures, and he helps Dora to solve clues and puzzles.
Diego Marquez is an 8-year-old Latino action-adventure hero with a heart. His goal is to save and protect the animals and their environment. Athletic and fearless, he is always at the ready no matter what the situation. Diego loves learning new things. He takes a scientific approach to problem solving and also uses a variety of high-tech gadgets and gizmos to save the day.
Backpack is a friend and special helper to Dora who helps her on all of Dora’s adventures. Just like Dora, Backpack can speak both Spanish and English. Backpack is a real go-getter with a can-do spirit. As Backpack says in her signature song, “Anything that you might need, I’ve got inside for you.” From binoculars to sticky tape, Backpack’s loaded up with everything Dora might need for her quest, though it’s up to the viewer to pick out the item that will solve the problem at hand.
Swiper is a sneaky orange fox. As his name implies, Swiper steals or attempts to steal key items that help Dora on her adventures. Clever as he is, Swiper never manages to take Dora completely by surprise; an ominous “whisking” sound is always audible just prior to his appearances.
To prevent Swiper from success, Dora must repeat the phrase, “Swiper, no swiping!” three times. Usually she prevails, and Swiper slinks away, snapping his fingers and saying, “Oh, man!”; sometimes, however, Swiper gets to the item before Dora has a chance to repeat the phrase. He then gloats, “You’re too late!” (and frequently “You’ll never find it now!”).
Now you know a little more about your children’s favourite Nickelodeon’s character, go enjoy the show next week at Resort World’s Sentosa!
