Art Lesson

I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! by Karen Beaumont! A couple of years ago I was introduced to this book at story time. I completely forgot about it. I came across it at the library the other day and couldn't resist the idea of using for an art lesson. We read thru the book several times and the kids were ready to get painting with watercolors. The book is really fun to read. Logan was signing the words over and over again: I ain't gonna paint no more!

Looks like such fun!

Question - how do you get the littlest to use the watercolors? I have a hard time with Esme getting the steps right - water, then paint, then paper... Usually we just make a big mess without any actual painting going on!

I think alot of it is just watching her older brothers. Leah can even use scissors. Its crazy! Its a gift!
