Designed to be more than a career day, the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® program goes beyond the average practice of "shadowing" an adult. Exposing girls and boys to what a parent or mentor in their lives does during the work day is important, but showing them the value of their education, helping them discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life, providing them an opportunity to share how they envision the future, and allowing them to begin steps toward their end goals ...

ScrapKins Build-It Book Vol. 1, 12 Things You Can Make From Junk! By Brian Yanish
This week, Mrs.O's Corner is a review of the book, "ScrapKins Build-It Book Vol. 1, 12 Things You Can Make From Junk! By Brian Yanish" by Colleen Lunn Scholer, publisher of Macaroni Kid Lewiston-Auburn, ME.

Banana Chia Chip Muffins
Chia plants are grown in Central and South America for their seeds. The chia seed is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and have hit the mainstream grocery stores in the United States within the last year. They are tiny little blackish-purple seeds that have a crunchy texture and soften to a tapioca consistency when soaked in liquid. The high fiber seeds are great when added to cereal, smoothies and yogurt. Here, a remix of the classic banana bread receives a nutrition boost with chia seeds.
Makes 12 to 14 muffins ...
