Just like Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz, we are all searching for rainbows. Perhaps it is the pleasing combination of colors or the curved shape that resembles a smile, but there is just something about them that radiates sheer joy and happiness. The fact that they are pretty rare only adds to their allure, making it a real thrill to spot one, almost as if you’ve uncovered a hidden treasure or found the entrance to a fairytale world.
One of the best ways to introduce a little bit of color and vibrancy into your kid’s day is to let them indulge in some rainbow-themed crafts and activities. As well as injecting a much-needed splash of color into their day, it will also give them a chance to stimulate their senses and develop their fine motor skills.
Of course, you needn’t restrict yourself to arts and crafts – a rainbow-themed baking activity is always fun and will certainly brighten up a winter’s afternoon. In summer, making pretty rainbow ice lollies with your kids will almost certainly prove to be a hit, not just because they’ll have fun making them, but because of how much enjoyment friends and family members will get from sharing in the fun of eating them afterwards.
Rainbows make great projects all year round. Grow your own rainbow, paint a rainbow, play with rainbow colored pasta, rainbow treats and more! If you are looking for some inspiration, here’s the perfect opportunity to explore the best rainbow themed crafts, art ideas, sensory play activities and even learn a little science!
