A Collection of Free Lesson Plans in Rainbow Colors
Rainbow Lesson Plans
Welcome to my collection of activities for children in rainbow colors! You will find each session with it's own color, listed below, 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.

What is your favorite color?
Red and yellow and pink and blue, orange and purple and green.....I can see a rainbow!
Songtime and Streamers
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, encouraging movement and providing lots of fun.

What Will You Find At The End Of The Rainbow?
This was a great way to sum up this series. We read this story whilst the children laid down on the floor, to remind them of our relaxation activity in the session on blue. We got the children to think about what they would like to find in their pots and why. The story is well illustrated and just long enough to capture the children's imagination.
Maybe this book could help you to find your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
Dreams in the Sky..
- Each child writes or draws a picture on a small piece of paper, 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 think about what they wished for when the balloon flies away.
