Storytime: Kandinsky

Books
(my crowd is preschoolers, but The Life and Work of…Wassily Kandinsky would be good for the elementary-aged crowd.)

noisy paint box aint gonna paint

The Noisy Paint Box by Barb Rosenstock
I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More! by Karen Beaumont

Songs

“This Is the Way…” (from Storytime Katie)
This is the way we stir the paint, stir the paint, stir the paint
This is the way we stir the paint so early in the morning
(dip our brush, paint the paper, blow it dry, frame the picture)

“We’re Making Some Purple Paint” (from Anne’s Library Life)
We’re making some purple paint,
Whip whip, whip whip (pretend to stir paint)
We’re making some purple paint,
Shooby dooby do (point fingers to the sky and do a little dance)
With purple potatoes and purple tomatoes,
And…..” (have kids tell you something purple to mix in)    

Activity
