Go rainbow spotting
While it might be unlikely to see an actual rainbow, get the kids outside and look for one. Use this time to move bodies, get fresh air, and have fun.
While you are searching the sky, talk about all the colors of the rainbow. This is a great activity for physical health because you’ll be out walking around.
Draw a huge rainbow
Tape some pieces of paper together and challenge the kids to draw the biggest rainbow. Once they are done, make some space to hang them up!
Anyone who sees a massive rainbow must smile and compliment it because it’s unique to see in a house!

All you need are some colored candies, frosting dyes, or fun colored foods to make edible rainbows. The kids will love that their learning packet ended with a tasty treat!
What makes rainbows fun to learn about?
Rainbows are a fascinating source of natural beauty that captivates the imagination. The rainbow phenomenon is caused by a combination of physical occurrences, allowing us to understand the science behind their beauty further.
Rainbows always provide photos and videos to share and appreciate through our digital devices.
On top of the mesmerizing colors, rainbows can also teach us facts such as the spectrum of visible light and the role of refraction in dispersing sunlight into different light colors.
Perhaps most significantly, rainbows offer joy and optimism as they often symbolize hope and promise after rainstorms.
Thus, we can learn much from something naturally beautiful yet intricate, like a rainbow.
What is the saying to teach my child the colors of the rainbow?
Teaching a young child the colors of the rainbow can be achieved with the classic saying, “ROY G. BIV!”
This acronym includes all seven rainbow colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet.
Involving children in mentally deciphering what ROY G BIV stands for can help them remember it and provide an opportunity to practice phonics and pronunciation skills.
As you move through each letter and color of the acronym, encourage your child to think about objects or activities associated with each particular hued color they may encounter daily.
For example, red balloons at a birthday party and blue straws in their juice box.
