< insert verb >-ing thing

I love the way that kids make up words when they don't know the correct language for them. Atticus has an interesting way of describing objects - he uses their action to name them.

For instance, a texta is a "drawing thing". The thing you use to hammer wooden pegs is a "hamming thing". And the trampoline is known as "the jumping thing".
