How does it work? How is it made? Whose idea was it? This series attempts to answer some of the questions that fill a child's world. Each program examines a process or invention. Produced in Canada by TV ONTARIO, Here's How! is a ten-minute instructional program seen on a limited number of PBS stations in the United States. The program also aired until the summer of 1999 on TVO itself. Each episode is ten minutes long, fitting nicely with other programming that may fill a PBS station's instructional block and takes viewers to factories, stores and other real places to show them how things work.

Episode summary:

Mouse and Orange Balloon are having a discussion about the possibility of Mouse being a ballplayer. Although Orange Balloon is skeptical of the idea, this gets the narrator talking about the history of balls. She talks about balls being an old tradition, with eventually someone inventing rules and various types of ball games beingt created. We go inside a factory where toy balls are made. There, we see how rubber is manipulated in various ways such as rolling, heating, and squeezing to create balls. We see how the rubber is rolled in talcum powder to keep from sticking and how it is that they're painted. Viewers also get a look at the special process of creating red, white and blue striped balls. This takes three days of work, as each color must be dipped and dried. Although Mouse decides on a preference for hide-and-seek, the narrator encourages viewers to go further, by doing such things as writing a story about a ball, or considering the differences of various sports.
