    Figure out what the three physical items in the list have in common. Name another item that has that same thing in common as the other three and state what that common trait is. For example, here are three items:

    fire truck, cherry, blood

    One possible answer could be:

    tomato - They can all be found in the color red


    You then come up with your own list of items that have something in common and list three of them as the next entry.

    The Rules: The things and their common trait should be something that most people, without any special knowledge should figure out. No listing of things you received one Christmas, objects in a particular Harry Potter book, things you see on your drive to work, etc. The common trait does not have to match the common trait used by the person creating the entry.

    I'll start off with ...

    piano, marionette, tennis racket
