It can be fun to try something different. Different can be something challenging, something new, or something outside the box. Different can be scary, frustrating, really rewarding, or all three. Nick, who loves origami, wanted to try something different. So he spent all last weekend making his teacher a thanks-for-being-so-awesome-this-year gift--a 3D paper fox cuz she loves foxes.
He found this really cool design online and spent the last three days cutting and folding 281 little rectangles of paper into tiny triangles and fitting them together. (He has endless focus, especially for a ten-year old.)
