I Ain't Gonna Paint No More Color Identification GamePreschool Book Club is back again, this time with a craft activity and game based on the book, "I Ain't Gonna Paint No More!". We've created a body part identification book activity for this book before, and were excited to read an play the book again! This time our activity addressed colors and body parts, and was it ever fun!
Body Part and Color Identification Game and Craft

We decided to paint bird houses like the boy paints his house. Out birdhouses became colorful works of art with colors mixing and spinning together. This was such a fun and engaging craft for the kids. We started with a wooden birdhouse that we received from www.craftprojectideas.com. Use
acrylic paints (also from craftprojectideas!) to paint the birdhouses.
Once the paint dried, we created a game based on the book. We used colored craft sticks to create color identification and body part identification game. Write the names of body parts on the colored craft sticks.
Now play the game! To start, we had each child choose 5 colored craft sticks. They closed their eyes and to pick the colors. We read the book again and as we saw colors in the story or heard body parts, the kids could place their colored craft sticks into the birdhouses. This was such a fun way to combine art and a learning game.
After we played our I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! game a feeeew times, we gave our colorful birdhouses to the birds! They are now decorating the trees around our house. we are waiting to see if any birds decide they want to live in a colorfully painted house!
