We read the book "Rain Talk" at snack time...We talked about the rain ( it was a very rainy day) . After our discussion we asked the children if there was anything in particular they wanted to do during our free/ art time. Some one said "make rainbows!" and the rest of the class agreed.
We set out only the primary colors and wrapped plastic wrap around a board. We asked the children to show us what a rainbow looks like.
It turned out to be a great way to revisit color and printing. They painted on the plastic wrap and pressed white paper on top of their painting. It was cool to see how the colors mixed together on the paper making the other colors they needed for the rainbow.
A few of the bigger children decided to make really big rainbows!
