My oldest daughter made a cheetah out of a bunch of scrap crafting material and then painted it up. I think she did a pretty excellent job! Along the way, she also learned a bunch of interesting facts about them, which she was happy to share. She also learned a ton of more important foundational lessons, like how to look at a pile of junk and make it take a particular shape in your mind and then manifest that shape, and how to find out information when you don’t even know what you don’t know.
She’s a smart, crafty, funny kid. Today cheetahs, tomorrow anything – this kid’s thirst for knowledge and adventure is boundless.
