“The creative mind is the playful mind. Philosophy is the play and dance of ideas.”
—Eric Hoffer, 20th Century American moral and social philosopher
Try the exercise of counting to one hundred by tens. This is no big deal for us adults, but for a two or three-year-old it’s pretty neat stuff.
Here we go:
10 — TEN
20 — TWENTY
30 — THIRTY
40 — FORTY
50 — FIFTY
60 — SIXTY
70 — SEVENTY
80 — EIGHTY
90 — NINETY
