Um, my baby sister makes the most adorable finger puppets and she DID NOT TELL ME she had a Princess Bride set (above) and a Mr. T. I'm transported back to my childhood just looking at these! Can I get a Punky Brewster, pretty please? Now that is just too much fun. You gotta see Uma from Kill Bill.

Everyone needs a little encouragement and I love that Maya Juniper Rose, age eight, chose to practice her graphic design skills and this is the quote she chose. At our house, we know that challenges are a part of the process and, yes, sometimes you gotta go through rain to get to that rainbow. Check out my enterprising daughter's Etsy shop, Jumpin Juniper.

Speaking of Maya, I've been saying for years that real apprenticeships will be making a comeback with this generation.

I got her this Kidpreneur book and it's perfect to break down the basics at her age.
