School re-opens and Project #2 – Rainbow

Posted on

School re-opens tomorrow and Yuvan is excited to be back in school…. The school holidays were fun, and the major activity was spending time – close to 7 hrs at the zoo,exploring the new water play area and the boat ride…. I will be doing a post later on that… It was totally fun and relaxing with lot of team work at home, Yuvan falling sick for two days.. kindaa a roller coaster school holidays..but had fun 🙂


And it was a rainy day yesterday and we did this project at home on rainbows post lunch,when it was only me and Y at home,with E engaged in an office pool tournament… I got the basic idea for the mural from this link

Supplies required :

1.Plain white paper

2.creative paper cut into small pieces for the rainbow colours

(I used crayons for violet and indigo )

3. Glue stick

How to do

1. Draw a rainbow on the plain sheet of paper

2. get the child to number each partition and count to get the number of colours in a rainbow.

3. Get the child Mark each partition with the concerned colour’s first letter

4. Do the rainbow either using crayons for all colours or using creative paper cut into small pieces…

5.If you are  using small pieces of creative paper, apply the glue on the respective area first and let the child drag the small pieces on to it and do it by himself.

6.Take another sheet of  paper and write simple facts about the rainbow… get the child involved in framing the sentences…

eg : when can u see a rainbow ? – The child :” On a rainy day ” – get him to write that ..
