Jedi Strength

Meet Renn, a young Jedi who is in the hospital for a couple of days this week as doctors try to understand his amazing and complex brain. You can read about Renn's journey at The Brain of a Jedi and learn more about epilepsy at the Purple Day site.
Now, it's not easy for a Jedi to be cooped up in a hospital room when there is training to be done, so I found a few sites that may help to pass the time and keep skills honed.

Lego offers Star Wars games, movies and a comic builder for a young Jedi to enjoy (or even a not so young Jedi).

Word Search puzzles keep the mind sharp and this one has hidden Star Wars aliens. The main site has some fun non-Star Wars related word search. I know, I know, how can it be fun if it's not Star Wars?

Hello Kids is overflowing with Star Wars coloring pages and puzzles.

Don't forget the Clone Wars on Cartoon Network with episodes and games available for Jedi training. (This one may be for slightly older kiddos, but as every kid has different sensitivities I recommend a parent having a look to make sure the show will be OK for their child.)

For more Star Wars fun visit Susanna Leonard Hill's site - home of the best hare-brained schemes on the web today.

Our thoughts are with you and your family, Renn. May the force be with you!
