First graders read the story, I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More! The little boy in the book LOVED to paint, except he painted everywhere but the paper!
First graders drew self portraits and then outlined in Sharpie. Next they painted in with water colors. They could be as crazy as they wanted in their color choices to paint themselves in, just like the little boy in the story. We then added purple handprints. (They thought it was so cool to get their hands painted purple:)
