Mouse paint!!!

At the Library yesterday the girls and I checked out the CUTEST book ever!  Mouse Paint By: Ellen Stoll Walsh.  We read it yesterday and immediately I started thinking of things we could do with the book! I went with my first idea and broke out some paints and had the girls paint along while I read.

Oh but first I drew the three white mice on their page!
I am loving this book, I love how fun it is and just the hands on way it introduces primary and then secondary colors

The girls really had a good time painting the story :)
"Look mommy I made orange!"

"It's gween!!"
And purple!
I love just how differently they painted the same story!

So what is your favorite children's book lately????

PS. If you have preschoolers run to the library NOW and grab this book! Even my 7 year old sat and listened to me read it yesterday! :)

It seemed like a lot of fun for you and the girls. It has been a long long time since I picked up a children's book. The last one I read was The Little Prince which was many many years ago.
