April showers bring May flowers, or so they say! Which means we’re having a rainy month and we’re on the lookout for rainbows these days. This easy craft is a cute way to bring a little color and rainbows inside, even when the days are cloudy and gray.
First, we measured out a length of red ribbon that was as tall as Travis – he thought it was neat to see a piece so long!
Once we had our red, we could measure out the other colors of the rainbow against it. This is a good chance to review ROYGBIV order for preschoolers. Travis used scissors to cut each to the right length.
Now fold one ribbon in half, and loop through the ring of a canning jar. Pull the ends of the ribbon through the loop.
Pretty soon we had our rainbow strings for dancing!
Put on some good music and just jive.
Or perhaps do a raindance.
If you’re lucky and it’s beautiful outside, this little rainbow looks even prettier out in the sunshine!
