Rainbows really engage young kids because they are so bright and colorful. So using them to teach important skills is super smart!
We had a blast with this super cool walking water rainbow science experiment recently and I bet your kids would love it too!
In my experience rainbows are an excellent medium for learning activities for kids. There are so many ways to integrate rainbows and learning, but here are a few of my favorites!
