Printable Rainbows for Arts and Crafts
Have fun with printable rainbow arts and crafts! I have always loved crafts and the colors of the visible spectrum - they're two of my favorite things in the whole world. I've been designing crafts and printables for many years, since my younger daughter was a preschooler and fell madly in love with rainbows.
I've created a full spectrum of rainbow arts and crafts: tie-dye, embroidery patterns, printables and colorful arts and crafts since I was a child and I don't think I'll ever get tired of them.
I now share my passion with you and hope you enjoy these wonderful over the rainbow arts and crafts!

The Colors of the Rainbow
Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet are the ordered colors of the visible light spectrum.
When I was in college we spent an entire course learning about color. We painted many color wheels using different criteria. I prefer the pure hues when I make a color chart, but nature has a beautiful way of blending all the colors in light when she crafts a rainbow.
