Hand Print Fish Craft

If you want a simple craft that's perfect for a variety of ages, have your kids make their own fish using their hand prints! My 4 year old made several, and when my 9 year old saw what we were working on, he had to make his own...I had to make a couple of my own fish too, of course :).

You can keep this craft simple with markers, scissors and construction paper...or you can dig through your stash of craft supplies and pull out stickers, googly eyes, puff paint, pom poms, etc.

Hand Print Butterfly Craft

When I found out I was having a girl (5 years ago!), I decided to decorate her room in a butterfly theme. Needless to say, it stuck and we have loved butterflies ever since! This butterfly hand print craft was so simple, but she loved making it!

The Restoration Series: Jonathon's Walk

Do you have a connection with someone in prison? I imagine, whether we realize it or not, we all know someone who is in or who has been in prison. My great uncle was in prison...though I don't know any other details than that. The closest I have ever come to prison was when we sent our dog to the local prison for their dog training program. When I went to pick our dog up, I had to walk through several gates with razor wire, and check in. I watched as the prisoner who trained our dog showed us his new tricks. The program they have there rehabilitates dogs from shelters so they can be adopted and also trains dogs for families. Through this program, I came to have a slightly better appreciation for the men and women who do this program...who spend their days making the lives of those dogs better.

 Jonathon's Walk is a series that goes live today. It shows us how he has spent 15 years in prison from a mistake made at age 18. Through the series, we see how his family has had to carry on without him, and how they will have to reintegrate as a family after being apart for so long.The odds are stacked against him because over half of America's prisoners who get released end up back in prison. He has gone through a program called The Academy to help him reintegrate into life outside of prison walls.

The Restoration Series: Jonathon's Walk is a five part documentary. If you would like to watch this series or send the link to someone that might be touched by it, check it out and sign up to watch it at this link. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
