My 5 year old granddaughter is one of my great helpers! She will drop anything for some art time, for a new craft, or just some drawing time on her own. As you can imagine, we have much in common. So a few weeks ago, while visiting with Nomi, her brother Ruben, and their parents, I had a big stash of threads with me to wind and prepare gift grab bags that I like to slip inside your order boxes. I wind the threads and then put them together in color groups, whatever strikes my fancy. There was Nomi, and I thought: I'll have my helper work with me! I explained the task and with much excitement she embarked on her journey. I asked her to write down what each combination she pulled reminded her of, what it make her think of. She loves sounding out words and I gave her little bits of paper to write the thoughts on. Here are her combinations and thoughts:
|I'm pretty sure you don't need me to read these to you, but just in case: AKA flowers|
|Beautiful, of course|
|Apples, (who needs that second "p" anyway??)|
and that, in a nutshell, is our Nomi.
