Teaching Children about Reducing Waste (Bal Tashchit)

Yasmin must hold her nose to wade through the garbage piling up outside the Plony house. Though she turns off the faucet and begs Momma Plony not to use extra paper towels, it takes a magical Sparks- inspired flood to sort out the real trash from the recyclables.

Menorah Craft Project

We made this keepsake on the last night of Hannukkah last year. As a fairly new family, making this took all three of us, including our four month old, and was such a fun way to introduce our daughter to Jewish culture!

Teaching Children about Respect (Kavod)

Papa Plony is obsessed with beating the Baloney family in the annual relay race. But when Yasmin flakes out on practice, and a new team member shows up with an unexpected physical difference - he panics.
