Rainbow Lesson Plans

Welcome to my collection of activities for children in rainbow colors! You will find each session with it's own color, full of fun and educational ideas and resources that will carry you through many weeks of rainbow colors. After each session, you could inform the children of the next one so that they could bring items of that color for an interest table or could dress in the color. This will give them something to focus on and look forward to each time and give them a sense of participation and belonging to the group.

What better theme could you find that will ignite and inspire the senses of children and adults alike? From here you will have a rich and natural springboard from which to teach them and guide them through your curriculum. I haven't labelled the activities with the steps or stages that you might look out for and need to cover, aware that different countries and regions will have different curriculums, but you will find nevertheless a great variety of activities that will amply meet your needs. I have also declined from placing age restrictions on their suitability, but rather hope that they will cover most of the younger age ranges and will be adapted easily enough when not.

These activities for children are also appropriate for those wishing to organize a more relaxed session with a group of children. So whether you are a teacher, parent or kids club organizer, I hope that you will have great fun with these free lesson plans.

Ideas on this page could be used as an introduction to the series or to sum up at the end. See below for individual links to each color lesson plan.

Sportime 36" Plastic Glitter Wands with Satin Ribbon Streamers, Assorted Colors (Set of 6)

"I can see a rainbow".....Using streamers in the different colors, get the children to lay them out on the floor to form a rainbow.

Use them to wave around whilst singing some songs about color that you have used in your sessions. They could move them to indicate waves of the sea, branches swaying in the wind and dancing to celebrate. Helps to develop their motion skills and socialization skills.

These streamers are suitable for young children. Each has a satin ribbon and matching, glittered, plastic handle.


Summing Up And Rainbows

Your final session could be an opportunity to think back on all the colors of the previous sessions. See how much they can remember.

What Will You Find At The End Of The Rainbow?

Moonbear's Skyfire (Moonbear Books)
Moonbear's Skyfire (Moonbear Books)

A great way to sum up this series. Tell this story and get the children to think about what they would like to find in their pots and why.

With a little imagination, this book could help you to find your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.


Summing Up With Rainbow Dreams

Each child writes or draws a picture of what they wish for at the end of the rainbow and fold it up. They choose a balloon and place the paper inside before it is blown up. Encourage them to pray and believe for what they wished for when the balloon flies away (if they can part with it and decide to let the air out).

      Rainbows really are such a happy theme and ideal for children. I am still fascinated by them even at my age and with St.Patrick's day drawing close of course they are on my mind.
