Learning 3D design with my 10 year old daughter using Tinkercad

I've long wanted to share my love of technology with my daughter and teach her some practical software skills.

For the first time in her life, I actually feel like I'm doing that.

Tried getting her into programming in the past but it didn't really stick.

Tinkercad is much more interesting to her, as it bridges the computer to the real world via 3D printing.

We're thinking about designing dollhouses, things like marker-holders for her school room, toys for her dolls.

Maybe even our entire backyard to help us visualize certain changes we want to make in the backyard.
