step-stool as bead organizer, via 5-year-old marco

Our friend Anthony Giglio sent us this email:

…being a vertically-challenged Italian-American with extra-tall kitchen cabinets, I keep a step-stool at the ready for a quick boost. This week while trying to pack lunch boxes for Sofia and Marco I couldn’t find my white, plastic step-up, and calls out to the family yielded not a single response. Then I found Marco organizing beads. Reaching into a huge jar filled with thousands of colored beads he was sorting them by color into separate compartments, by way of dropping each one into a grid on the underside of my inverted step stool. I had no idea these “compartments” were even there! How did he find them? Brilliant discovery and improv. But now I need a new stool!
