Ants is an episode of Series 3 of Alphablocks.


T counts down while A drops in in time for the picnic. N arrives ten seconds late. T has tea for the picnic. A has apples. N has... nothing, of course. T tells him he can't except a picnic to appear.

a-n-t, ANT!

An ant appears, tickling A, N, and T, and steals the apples. A blames N, when he says it wasn't him. S appears to help.

a-n-t-s, ANTS!

Many ants appear, tickling A, N, T, and S and steal T's tea set. A, T, and S shout N's name in blame of him. N says it wasn't him. P pops in.

p-a-n-t-s, PANTS!

Six pairs of pants appear. They float down like parachutes. The ants are carrying them. When they land, they carry P, A, N, T, and S away from the picnic.

What will they do?

  • ANTS - More ants appear.
  • NAPS - N, A, P, and S take a nap.
  • PANS - Pans make a banging noise.
  • PANT - P, A, N, and T pant while running in place.
  • PATS - P, A, T, and S pat each other.
  • TANS - T, A, N, and S get a tan.
  • TAPS - Four taps appear, making T, A, P, and S wet.
  • SNAP (star word) - N decides to snap his fingers and make a delicious picnic appear. A, P, T, and S turn away from him, and when N snaps, a picnic with many delicious foods appears. A, P, T, and S don't notice. The ants steals the picnic. N tries to stop them, but when the others turn to him, they shout his name. N is depressed and walks away. I and C appear to help.
