Preschool 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 Game and Craft
I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More!
by Karen Beaumont is a colorful and exciting book. A creative little boy paints first his house, walls, and ceiling and then when his mama objects to that, decides to paint his body. My kids LOVE the rhyming nature of this book. As we read the book (again and again!) they guessed the body parts that the little boy painted.
We decided to paint birdhouses 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.
