10 Rainbow Crafts for Kids

Do rainbows put smiles on your faces?   I know my kids love discovering a rainbow in the sky.   Here are some of our favorite rainbow activities that we discovered (or added to) in the worldwide web!   Which one is your favorite?

I love the simplicity of this rainbow from Tribal Times.   She squirted paint on her windshield and the kids had a rainbow that traveled with them!   Her site has lots of other simple smiles.

These Rainbow pops look so fun & yummy.   Easy to make too with a Dixie cup and a Popsicle stick.   Check out Secrets of a Super Mommy for a tutorial.

Rainbow activities for preschoolers I love these squishy paint bags from Sherry and Donna of Irresistible Ideas for Play Based Learning.   They love to have fun with their kids!
