Welcome to stART! I hope that you will enjoy our story and art project and maybe even share your own too. All I ask is that you link back to A Mommy’s Adventures somewhere in your post by either adding my button or a text link, so that others can see all the other great projects that everyone shares too! The linky will be open all week. Be sure to stop by and visit the different links…every week there are so many different and fun book and craft ideas!
Check out the stART tab in my navigation bar where you can find our past stART projects. All the books that we have read and did a stART project for are listed in alphabetical order.
This week we read I Ain't Gonna Paint No More!, by Karen Beaumont. This is a really cute story about a child that is not allowed to paint anymore because his mom found him painting all over the floors and walls. So he decides he is going to paint is body instead. He is just going to paint his head, but can’t resist covering his entire body in color! I read this book to our Art Group and then after each child was able to paint their hands and then print them onto a piece of paper. Or they could trace their hand on the paper and paint just the paper. Off course since painting your hand with paint is so much fun, they all opted for that option! Emily did decide that she wanted to try both since there was room on her paper.
