Spring is a great time to talk about rainbows with the children. There is more rain during this time of the year and chances of seeing a rainbow are pretty good if you live in an area with rainy spring days. Most children enjoy rainbow anything, so you can include a variety of activities for them as you learn about rainbows together.
Prisms are a fun way for children to work with as they turn and explore with one in just the right way to see a rainbow reflection on say white paper or on a wall. Outdoor crafts are nice to do in the warming sun after the cooler winter days. A brief rainbow lesson can be found in Week 21-Day 4 of the curriculum pages.
