Whether it was the Backyardigans episode, "Super Secret Super Spy," or just imaginative play with friends, I don't know, but sometime last fall, the kids began playing International Super Spy. Now, there are intricacies to this game that I am continuing to learn, and some that make absolutely no sense whatsoever. For example, although they are international spies, they can only speak English while playing this game. I have tried reasoning with them, and explaining how being a spy actually works, to no avail, so I currently believe the English only thing is purely to annoy me.
Also, the international spies in this household have to wear all one color. JA is the "black panther" and only wears black while playing spy. The black clothing is so important, that JA has a drawer devoted to it, and is proud to have 2 complete outfits of black. JT is the "arco iris" spy and can wear any color he wants, but only one color at a time. If you watch the archery video, you'll notice that JA is in black, and JT in red.
UPDATE: Yesterday JA wore all purple! And a few days ago she wore white. Maybe she's beginning to branch out a bit?
