Imagine yourself knitting, your fingers agile and moving to a rhythm all your own.
Envision kneading dough, the smooth cool consistency conforming to your touch. The smell. The subtle anticipation.
Imagine dirt in your hands, gritty and soothing as you move it about to plant flowers and herbs and vegetables. The delight of knowing what will come.
Are you in the moment? How do you feel during? How about after the task or project is complete?
When we make a pie, craft a card, sand wood or even fold laundry, we are doing more than just creating. For a child that is magic.
Check out the video below and recall the magic that goes through our little one’s hands.
