This delicious treat is part art project and part recipe, and all you need is a slice of bread and any fixins’ you can find around the house.

Friday – Guest Day: Jamie Katz, Pet Detective
Yup, pet detectives are really a thing, and Jamie Katz (her REAL name!) is one of the best as Kenny and Jill (aka Page Turner) found out first hand when Jamie helped them find their lost cat, Philo. Jamie will introduce us to her sniffer dogs, Gable and Fletcher and show kids how she trains them to help find lost pets.
