It’s always fun to encourage creativity and that you-can-do-anything mentality.

I told her, “no problem!”

Teaching kids about design and creativity is also a valuable skill that can be used in any industry. Not just animals and geography can be taught this way, but you can also teach history, science, and math with Photoshop and pictures.
