Just the other day, Elliot loses his first tooth. Before bed, he wraps it tight in a blanket and places it beside him for the night. In the morning, Elliot finds a coin. He is over the moon and explains a special mouse came to collect his tooth and in return, left a coin behind. I am familiar with a tooth fairy but Elliot prefers the mouse, the preferred method in France, where we now live.
About to store his coin in a safe place, and we realize that he does not have a piggy bank. Instead of buying one, we spend time making his very own. Along the way, we combine a bit of math, building a 3D cuboid and art, covering it with paper-mache and painting it.
In Part 1, Elliot and I construct 3D cuboids together. Stay tuned for Part 2 and 3 coming soon.
