My 9 year old is making a game board for a science project. We need to go buy index cards to make the questions that will advance you along the "Animal Trail."
His board actually started out very sloppy. We had a talk about being proud of your best work. He said it was his best. I said nope. He is too old to praise him for simply getting it done. He has to do it well or start over. Not a happy boy at first!
I didn't make him start over this time as we are out of cardboard. We learned how to fix mistakes and make it look nicer. Next time, he said he'll use a ruler!
