Rainbows are a beautiful part of spring and they are especially popular around St. Patrick’s Day. They provide the perfect opportunity for children to learn their colors.
Rainbows can also be used as inspiration for language, math, and science activities too. Here are some fun ways for your child to practice basic skills, with the help of all of the colors of the rainbow.
