Happy Easter!

Thanks, Easter Bunny!

The kids got these in their Easter baskets this morning. They're called unazukin, originally from Japan. You ask them a question or tell them a story, and they nod, double nod, shake, or double shake their heads.

I think the story goes that these are forest fairies that live under mushrooms in the forest. But they're very busy, so when their animal friends get together to tell stories, they just listen without saying anything, and nod or shake their heads.

We had lots of fun with them today.

Hope everyone out there had a happy Easter!
