R is for Rainbows!

I know, I know!  I’m supposed to posting about Christmas things!  But Thanksgiving is over and December hasn’t quite begun, so I thought this was the perfect time to squeeze in my Rainbow project.  We had so much fun with this, I just couldn’t wait until Christmastime was over!  Let’s get started!

I started with this picture (from Pinterest) as inspiration:

Check out the full post for details  on making an engineering print (super fun and super cheap!) I decided to do our poster as if Chipmunk was holding the rainbow in her hands. Here’s our starting picture:

While the kids were sleeping, I painted a rainbow in her hands and hung it up on the door as a surprise.

I was so delighted at Chipmunk’s face when she saw her rainbow poster!  Even the baby ran around smiling and laughing when he saw it!  So fun!

After we hung this poster up as an example, we made small versions with each of the daycare.   I started with a picture of each child, holding their hands out.  I love using Walgreens for pictures, because you can take the pictures, upload, and pick them up 10 minutes later!

We went through each color, one by one, starting at the bottom of the rainbow and painting a bow, talking about the colors as we went along.

Chipmunk decided to make rainbow dots instead of bows, but it still turned out great!

Finished! Love it!!

We did a few more rainbow activities, but I’ll save them for the Spring!
