"We need some flowers in these vases" she said.
"They will make everything look pretty" she said.
She was right!
It was a pleasure to share a few peaceful moments in the day with this child, doing something as simple as picking and arranging flowers.
Looking at the flowers together, watching her smell them, feel them and organise them just so - there is magic in these everyday things.
If we try to look at things with children, if we value the moments when they stop and stare and wonder at the world, then we probably do more for their creative, aesthetic and artistic development than a host of specific art activities might ever do.
