Coloring the Rainbow: A collection of Colorful Party Ideas

We love color, coloring and exploring a variety of hues with our preschoolers.  I was browsing through the archives of our weekly kids meme, It’s Playtime and discovered a bunch of oldies and goodies featuring the rainbow.


Colorful Party Ideas

These rainbow cupcakes were made ages ago and my kids are begging me to mix up some cake batter and bring out the bowls and food coloring.  They had fun swirling the colors in their treat.

Rainbow Party Ideas

Bake some yummy rainbow cookies with your kids.  Just add food coloring to your favorite sugar cookie recipe and Red Ted Art will tell you how to layer the dough so you can make your own colorful squares.

Have fun with a sensory activity for kids by creating a tub full of colorful rice.  All you need to dye your rice is rubbing alcohol and food dye.  Check out the link for a terrific tutorial.

Let your children see and feel the colors of the rainbow while painting.  The perks of this kids craft is that there is all the fun with none of the mess.  Those kiddos painted inside ziplock bags.

A perfect treat for a party would be an edible cup of color.  Learn with Play had a fun rainbow party and they enjoyed eating jello cups – check out her blog for tips on how to make the cups and other party ideas.


What is your kids favorite color of the rainbow?

I’d love to hear about it in the comments, or if you’ve written a post featuring color, link up in this week’s It’s Playtime.  Thanks to all of you who make this a fun kids meme full of inspiring activities.  You make my day.  Your posts will be seen not only on my blog but also on my co-hosts:

Have a great week!
