Sometimes it's not many hands that make light work….but rather little hands that persevere with absolute concentration until the tower is built or all the letters are in their place.

During a visit with my fairy and monkey to The Melbourne Museum this week, these two were happy to quietly sit building their lego towers and let their fingers do the talking. There is something quite magical watching the little fingers and hands translate the imaginative messages from their brain synapses as they build their colourful towers and design their cities made of numbers and blocks.
