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!
