I do not know the traditions of small American children, about their games in the schoolyard.
Here in France, our happiness was to play ball during recess.
I think my fascination with the ball, drove me to my fascination with beads !!
I adored the ball, color, size .. I had a lot that I kept as treasures.
Also, like school just started, this is what it has inspired me!
have a nice day!
