Growing up in South Florida, we had many interesting creatures living nearby in the swamp, but the one I feared most was the alligator. I vaguely remember being told to run zigzag if one ever chased me on land. After researching that alligators can run up to 20 miles an hour and climb fences, I now know zigzags are useless and running away as fast as you can works best.
We now live in Southern California with no alligators in sight, so I wanted to introduce my daughter to a fun and friendly version made from popsicle sticks! She doesn’t need to know the terrifying truth, at least not yet.
What are some of the unique lessons you learned where you grew up?
