Somewhere over, under, and on rainbow children can explore learning concepts. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet arranged in arcs just seem perfect for activities and games. I have shared a number of rainbow learning activities. Several other blogs have shared amazing ways of making learning fun with rainbows too. I thought I would shared twelve activities for kids. They cover a wide variety of concepts. They are all hands on and most importantly they all look like fun.
I hope you will take a few moments to explore each of them. If you find some that you really love, please take a moment to leave them a comment or to pin them to your Pinterest boards. I have already pinned all of them to my Early Learning board.
Making Learning Fun Activities
This game works on color words. After kids have read a color word card, they move a space a rainbow path on a game board. I really love this free printable game!
Children roll a die to find out how many colored circles featuring various alphabet letters they may walk on. They have to share the letter they landed on.
This one of my making learning fun with rainbows activities. Children search through magazines for many of the colors of the rainbow. They arrange magazine cutouts in those colors on the correct arc to create a rainbow.
Various colors of the rainbow watercolors can be painted over sight words written with crayon. You really need to see this activity. It looks like so much fun.
This is an awesome fine motor busy bag activity. Children will love weaving various rainbow colors to create beautiful rainbows.
A rainbow salt tray like the one shared in a post by Learning 4 Kids would be great for working on letter and number writing. It would also be wonderful for just exploring fine motor skills.
This game is a lot like Tiddly Winks. Children try to leap gold coins from circle with various colored sections into a pot of gold.
This open ended game board could be used to review sight words, math facts or science questions. Any subject could be reviewed as children travel up a rainbow path to get to the pot of gold.
Children get to review their measurement skills as they create arcs for a rainbow. You will love the printables that she has created for kids to use for this activity.
Magnetic Letters and metal tray are an invitation to making learning fun. Children are invited to complete the rainbow started with a single row of colored letters.
This is a set free printables I created for my son to use to practice writing his sight words. Children write and rewrite their sight words across one of the rainbow’s arcs.
Each bead on this rainbow bracelet invites a child to share a different aspect of a story. What a wonderful retelling activity!
