  • A Walk In The Rain With A Brain – Activity #4: "Smart & Active Brains"

Activity #4: “Smart & Active Brains”

This activity uses fun finger paints to create a personalized brain.


  • Finger paint paper (9” x 12”)
  • Tempera paint (vibrant blue or purple recommended)
  • Various colours of construction paper (9” x 12”)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Crayons, felt pens
  • Thick black felt pen

Teacher Preparation:

  • N/A


Step by Step: 

Step One: Display the shape of the brain to remind students what it looks like.

Step Two: On their finger painting paper, have the students use the finger paint to create a ‘wormy-looking,’ ovalshaped brain. Using a circular motion with the finger paints works best.

Step Three: Allow paint to dry.

Step Four: Outline each brain (cloud like) in thick, black felt pen.

Step Five: Cut the brain out, following the black felt pen line.

Step Six: Have students ‘dress up’ their brains using various colours of construction paper to create shapes for eyes, lips, body, legs, arms, a hat, etc.

Step Seven: Glue these to the brain to create a “brain person”

Step Eight: Review from students’ previous writing, all the things their brains like to do.

Step Nine: Create a computer generated caption that identifies what each student’s brain likes to do:


My brain likes to play soccer.

My brain likes to bake cookies.

My brain likes to do Math.

My brain likes to play baseball.

My brain likes to play with my friends.


End Product:

Dressed-up brains depicting what the students feel their brains like to do. Captions are included to identify specifically what the students’ art work represents. Display on a bulletin for a class-set of brain-people.
