Rainbow Theme ART - Pop, Pop, Pop the BUBBLES

Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll walsh

Rainbow Letter R

What You Need:
Rr Template (courtesy of
Construction Paper in red, orange, yellow, green, blue & purple
Background Paper

What We Did:

Prep - I cut up the construction paper for the rainbow colors into small strips approx. 1/2in wide

Working from the bottom of the letters, the Lil Divas glued the strips in rainbow order until they reached the top of the letters.

Once the strips had dried I turned the letters over and cut out the Rr using the blackline from the template which I could see from the back.

Here's how the finished product looked - the Lil Divas loved it!

Writing & Identifying Letter Rr

Number Practice

Rainbow Number Cards (by Confessions of a Homeschooler)

I cut these in half and used them as amatching/puzzle game. The Lil Divas had to count the dots on the cloud and match it to the numeral on the other card to complete the rainbow.

Craft: Rainbow Bubble Painting

What You Need:
Bubble Solution
Food Coloring
White Paper
Plastic Straws

What To Do:

Prep: I mixed the food coloring, making the colors of the rainbow as needed, into bowls filled with bubble solution

I opted to do this activity outside because it was the perfect day for it and this way I would not have colored bubbles in the house!

I set up the bowls on the floor with straws and the Lil Divas got to work, blowing bubbles through the straws at the white paper and watching them "pop".

This is what you get as the colored bubbles pop onto the white paper.

It was a fun and easy craft that the Lil Divas enjoyed!
