I recently interviewed Karen Blessen, one of the founders of the non-profit organization Today Marks the Beginning. Ms. Blessen is an amazing woman who has created many things in her life, but I think that Today Marks the Beginning is her pride and joy.

I loved these two videos, one using paper plates and the other using a cereal box. Have fun with your kids today!
