I Ain't Gonna Paint No More Tactile Body Part Identification Game

Our book for this month's Book Club Play Dates series is I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! Each month we'll share a themed snack, sensory activity, craft, busy bag, and game to go along with a popular children's book that we love! We created a tactile rich follow the leader game to help kids learn to name parts of the body.

I Ain't Gonna Paint No More by Karen Beaumont is a silly book that is easily adaptable to song. The child in the store paints everything you shouldn't including lots of body parts! Invite over your child's friends or plan to use this gross motor game in your classroom. You only need clean paint brushes and this book!

I set out a variety of clean paintbrushes. I invited our preschooler E to choose one for this game as we discussed the textures, materials, and colors of the brushes available. I re-read the story as E acted it out with her brush pretending to paint her own body. 

Other variations include a follow the leader type game where children are asked to mimic and name the part of the body that the leader is painting. Early readers could choose body part words out of a stack of cards then paint what they read. The possibilities are endless!

Tactile sensory stimulation when you are learning or reviewing information such as the name of the body parts engages more senses so children are more likely to remember what they learn from this game!
