They've learned that all of Allah's creations are special.
As a child, we had pets. Our pets are always keep outside, there was very little interaction with them except to throw them so food. Honestly, I remember being afraid of every animal we had. This relationship is sharp contrast between the way my children view pets. The buns are loved and cared for in a very different.
Bunnies are mammals too.
My children did weeks of research before we purchased our bunnies. They learned their anatomy, desired living conditions, dietary needs, and the best way to play and stimulate them. Before I knew it their conversations where nothing short of a rabbit care manual! They learned so much, and it all was useful.
Pets are responsiblity.
We've found our bunny babies to be pure work. Feeding and cleaning are the two biggest jobs. We're had to be creative with their living environment finally settling on two big dog kennels affectionately known as the condos. Sharing the responsibilities among the three of them has taught them a lot about working together and collective efforts.
Overall our experience loving and caring for Scarlett and Jolene has brought about a maturity and strengthening of faith. And they're pretty cuddling too!

an old frame (thrift store find)
letter stickers (from the scrapbook aisle)
spray paint in your color of choice
The original print was a hunting theme and we just put the letters of the ayat we'd chosen right over it. I sprayed the frame a pretty purple and the print silver. You'll just spray paint right over the letters. When the print drys, carefully peel the letter stickers off, put your frame together and done. Enjoy!

Premade plain leather bracelets (Got ours at Micheal's Craft Store)
a wood burner
We wrote what we wanted to say on the bracelets first and then trace it with the wood burner. Enjoy!

a cute photo frame (Go to the thrift store)
a piece of scrapbook paper cut to fit the frame
a paint color for each member of your family
lots of yummy fingers
I traced a heart onto the paper. Each family member helped to fill in the heart with their finger tips. So simple, but so beautiful! Enjoy!
