I Ain't Gonna Paint

I Ain't Gonna Paint No More
Written by Karen Beaumont and Illustrated by David Catrow
HMH Books for Young Readers, 2005

A fun about rhyming (great for phonemic awareness that contributes to early reading), colors, creativity and body parts!. The grammar may not be the best model for our kiddos but the rest of the book makes up for it, making a fun, engaging and delightful book.

You can read the book while your child follows along painting in the bathtub. Here are some bathtub friendly paint recipes. They call for food coloring, but to insure 'washability' if you have washable paints, I would encourage you to substitute them in for the food coloring.

Bathtub Paint Recipe 1:
1/2 Cup of Cornstarch
1/2 Cup of Water
1 Cup of Dish or Hand Soap
Dye/food coloring

Bathtub Paint Recipe 2:
Can of shaving cream
Food coloring
Muffin Tin to mix them in

Bathtub Paint Recipe 3:
1 tbl cornstarch
4-6 pumps of baby shampoo
2-3 drops food coloring
1-2 tsp water
