Some new activities

Scarlett got some fun stuff in her Easter basket last week. She got some magic finger paints from Nan. They're magic because they only show up on the special paper, and not on everything else. This "magic" aspect is far more impressive to me than it is to Scarlett. The clean-up is wonderful. Mainly because it's almost non-existent. Needless to say, Scarlett loves painting with them. We've hung the pictures on the fridge and she keeps pointing at them saying "I made that." Yes, Bubsy. Yes you did.

Now be warned. This is a boring video. Every once in a while I will post something that is far more impressive to Joe and I than I'm sure it is to all of you. But humor me. We got Scarlett this bead threading kit and she is doing very well with it. Now don't take your bead threading skills for granted. It is actually a pretty complex task. Of course, Scarlett has gotten to the point where our excitement and encouragement embarrasses her. If you listen in the beginning of the video, she asks us to "stop it mama and dada."

Carson has markers like that but they take a few seconds for the colors to show up. Are the paints like that too? I think it's hard for Carson to get into them because he can't see what he's drawing immediately.
