i did a little test for my friend mari to see if the little dude was old enough to do the create-your-own-font-thing. the little dude is 4. he'll be 5 in december. i'd say that while he did an ok job it was a little tough for him. luckily, since i have photoshop, i was able to manipulate things a little. i never changed the look of any letter, but sometimes i had to make them smaller to fit in the box. the boxes are a little small for a new writer. luckily he has amazing patience beyond his years and was able to complete all the capital and lowercase letters before wanting to be done. so, we have no punctuation or numbers, but that can come later.
he thinks this was the coolest thing ever and when he saw his writing come up as i typed the letters on my computer, his smile couldn't have been wider.
