Rainbow Activities

We've spent the days leading up to Saint Patrick's Day doing several rainbow activities. We've been learning the colors of the rainbow and how to mix the primary colors to make all of the rainbow colors. We've been reading rainbow stories, including Noah's Ark (in which God sends a rainbow as a sign of his covenant). We've talked about leprechauns hiding their pots of gold at the end of rainbows.

Here are some of our projects:

I thought it was interesting to see what shapes their rainbows took. And yes, I did have them paint "topless" since they both had been wearing new t-shirts that day.

I saw the idea for these rainbow cupcakes in *Family Fun* magazine. We especially had fun mixing all of the colors into the cake batter.

We got white carnations and put them in rainbow colored water. It's been a few days and they are just starting to show some of the colors in the flowers. Hopefully, I'll post an "after" picture soon!
