Rainbow Theme Week In Review

   We had a great week. He learned the colors of the Rainbow, reinforcing the colors he's learned. We used candy, fruit loops, coloring pages and books.
    We learned about Color Science trying to "Catch a Rainbow" and Make a Rainbow in a Jar.
    We made Rainbow Spaghetti and an awesome Melted Crayon ~ Piece of Art. Just Remember, ROY G BIV.

Next week, we are going to do a Winter Theme. It's supposed to snow on Monday, it's the perfect time.

Here are some ideas we didn't get a chance to try:

Torn Paper Rainbow
Fruit Loop Glued Rainbow
Rainbow Rice

Dye eggshells for another rainbow
Fingerprint rainbow
Rainbow colored glasses, toilet paper rolls and cellaphane
Mix 2 cups water with a little food coloring, add 6 cups of corn flour/cornstarch to make goop.  
 Rainbow Hop
Place rainbow shapes on the floor. Have the children hop from one rainbow to the next.
 Rainbow Goldfish

Provide every child with a shallow container of milk.
Place a couple drops of different food coloring in the milk.
Next have the child dip a toothpick into a little dish soap and then dip it into the milk.
What happens? Try it again!

What you need:


  • Pour 1 cup of milk into the bowl
  • Add 3 drops of red food color to one edge of the bowl 
    • 1/3 of the way away, add 3 drops of blue food color
    • 1/3 of the way away add 3 drops of yellow
    • don't mix or jiggle the bowl
  • Squeeze a drop of dish soap in the center of the bowl
  • Record what you see.
  • What do you think happened?
Truth Learned: The Rainbow and the Promise
“You see, I have set my rainbow in the sky. This will be the sign of the covenant I have made with you and all creatures, never again to destroy the earth by a flood. It will always remind us of the promise between you and me.” Gen. 9:11-17

So, the next time you see a rainbow, think of Noah and the flood. Remember that God loves you, and that no matter how bad the storm, there will always come a bright new day.

That is God's promise, and God always keeps his promises.
