We have a little brass table that my niece uses when she pops in and we sit down and do a bit of painting or whatever. Her favourite thing, after finding the cats, is glueing and sticking and covering drawing paper with glitter, a task that she tackles with such gusto that all of her concentration and energy goes into it. Remnants of the glitter stick to everything - the table, the cushions, the carpet - for the rest of the week, impossible to eradicate.
I just love her glitter obsession. Absolutely priceless.
