Today Red tried finger painting for the first time. It was his first real experience with paint, and he was a little wary of the whole process. I thought he'd dive right in, because he doesn't usually have any problem with getting messy. But when I put his hand in the paint, he looked at me like I was nuts and wiped it on his shirt. He was more interested in moving the paint globs around the plate than smearing it on the paper. Next time I'll just give him the plate with some paint as his canvas. I think he'll get the hang of it in no time.
We also started our first day of tot school today! I'll post pictures of our activities at the end of the week.
