StART- I Ain't Gonna Paint No More
This week we read the book I Ain't Gonna Paint No More by Karen Beaumont. It is a cute book about a child who paints things that he isn't suppose to paint, including his own body. I absolutely love this book. It is adorable and is also great to use when you are teaching about ryhming and predicting.
Little Sweets and I made finger paints out of handsoap and after we read the book I let her paint paint with the finger paints. She painted her body and the bathtub. She really enjoyed this activity. The best part was that clean up was so easy, we just filled up the bathtub.
Here is the recipe to make fingerpaints from hand soap. I got it from http://fun.familyeducation.com/. Mix together 2 tablespoons of liquid soap and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. Add 1 drop of food coloring.
