I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More! Amazon £9.34Messy Play
An exciting book that held the kid’s attention. They giggled while waiting to see what the little boy would paint next, they were particularly thrilled when he started painting himself. The words flow nicely almost in a sing-song manner. So it’s easy to remember and they can now “read” the book to themselves.
We read the book a few times at bedtime before deciding to re-enact the story.
I took a large piece of cardboard and drew a quick sketch of a living room. (Oops, the curtains should’ve been the other way)
It wasn’t long before they started painting their hands.
And nose, cheeks and even shoes!
It was quite a messy activity but nothing the washing machine and a good bath couldn’t handle.
