The Odd Life of Timothy Green was such a tear jerker for me, but I am the type that cries on long-distance phone commercials. The movie was very heart-warming and made you want to go hug your kid. You could totally feel the love exuding from the screen as Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton explain their story. I was engrossed from the start and was left with a sense of wanting to share my love with others. I recommend this flick for any family, and I think it would make a great tween gift! It’s the perfect, must- own family-film for audiences of all ages to enjoy and snuggle up to this coming holiday season. Check out the neat Odd Life of Timothy Green games and activities.
An easy to assemble Blessings Box made of cut paper and filled with a chocolate is a sweet way to express how much and why you appreciate a special person in your lives, making a great holiday gift kids can make for a coach, teacher or friend.
