Rainbow Craft Art Activities With ROY G BIV

Kids love rainbows and kids love crafts. Combine the two and you get activity-filled hours of fun and smiles all around.

My children and grandkids love rainbows too, so I'm always on the lookout for unique color-related learning activities with a spectrum theme. Enjoy these easy and inexpensive rainbow crafts for kids specially selected for preschool age children.

      I love rainbows. The rainbow craft sticks you have featured are so much fun, I have tons in different sizes and colors. Lately, I've been using them to make stick puppets.
