Even though St. Patrick’s Day was actually yesterday, we’re getting started with our rainbow theme now.
Why? Well, Nicholas has been on a little bit of a rainbow kick lately. He gets really excited anytime he sees one outside or on TV and has been drawing rainbow shapes on everything.
So I decided to go ahead and just separate the rainbows from St. Patrick’s Day and give them a week all of their own!
We started our week off with a rainbow color sequencing activity and not only did we cover the colors of the rainbow but we used it as a size sequencing activity as well!
To start, I printed out the colored rainbow (which you’ll find in printable form below) twice. Leaving one rainbow page intact, I cut out the second and cut the colored “strips” to separate them.
We spent some time matching the colored strips to the full rainbow and named each of the colors as we went along.
Afterwards, Nicholas decided that he no longer needed the guide and wanted to do it all on his own.
Finally, I printed off one of the black and white rainbows and we practiced using the glue stick some more as we put the colors of the rainbow in order.
I was actually really surprised at how well he did with matching the colors to their placement on the rainbow!
He had a blast doing it and I’m already looking forward to the rest of our rainbow activities!
