Favorite Rainbow Themed Activities, Crafts, Snacks, and Art Projects and Linky Party!



As we've been trudging through these dreary, gray days of winter, 
my mind keeps wandering to spring and beautiful rainbows! 
Today I'm sharing some of my favorite Rainbow themed posts from the blog
 to brighten your days and kick off the start of Spring. 
I hope they bring you some colorful ideas! 


You can start by filling your window sills with rainbows - 
make a dyed noodle Rainbow Sun Catcher Craft  (2009) to brighten your days. 

Make a Waldorf Window Star with kite paper in Rainbow Colors! 


Some fun bath time or water table play always keeps my girls entertained.
Try making some tub toys of your own by cutting shapes out of colored Craft Foam.

If it's cold and wintery outside, 
go make some Rainbow Ice (just add food coloring to water)
and freeze it in ice cube trays, bowls, cups, or balloons!

add some food coloring or kool-aid to spray bottles. 
(look how little "E" was in this picture -- that sure is an old post!)



Why not EAT a rainbow? 
Make a colorful snack for your kids.
You could make fruit salad, fruit kabobs, or 
a veggie plate with all of the colors of the rainbow. 


We set this one up at my daughter's Rainbow themed birthday party a few years ago. 
I colored Sprite with food coloring - Red, Blue, and Yellow
so the kids could pour it into cups and mix their own favorite colors (Green, Orange, and Purple)! 
Fun for grown-ups too. 
Better yet, throw a Rainbow Themed Party.
Make some Rainbow Jello! (2010)


Wear a Rainbow!


Add some rainbows to your sneakers (2010)
or...
Make your own Rainbow Necklace with Rainbow Cereal.
Invite a friend over and have your own mini Rainbow Fun Camp! (2009)


Get Crafty With Rainbows!


If it's warm enough outside, whip up a batch of 
with cornstarch, food coloring, and water. 


They are a beautiful addition to 
tote bags, grocery bags, and backpacks! 


Make some Rainbow Colored Glue! (2011)


Make a Yarn Wrapped Color Wheel. (2012)


Whip up a batch of my

Love all these ideas, especially the rainbow sneakers! One question about them, though - did the colour run at all or stain her socks?

Mary Catherine said...

Tons of great rainbow ideas, thank you! :)

Thank you! We do love Rainbows around here!
Excited to try some new projects from the linky too.


The rainbow sneakers were made with permanent markers so the colors did not run or stain her socks!

Warmly,

Your rainbow ideas are wonderful! Those stars are so cool!
I'm not sure why my pic is a little crazy for the rainbow tin can planters - who knows what I did :)
