I LOVE rainbows and while originally I was going to make this theme weather I decided to make it all about rainbows with just a splash of weather activities for good measure. Rainbows are happy and colorful and deserve to have a whole week of summer camp for themselves. I hope you agree because this is going to be a rad week!
If you haven’t signed up for our Camp Learn & Play email list you can do that here! This is the easiest way to stay in the loop and have fun all summer long.

PM: Rainbow Color Matching with Playdough
This is so simple but your kids will love it. Matching the colors helps develop skills that will eventually help with reading and math ( yes, seriously) and it’s fun!
These rainbows are super fun to make because the corks make a great sound when you print them on the paper!
PM: Rainbow Gelatin Exploration
Not only is this a squishy fun exploration you don’t have to worry if the kids eat this, it won’t hurt them. I don’t sweeten the jello ( in fact I use Koolaid and plain gelatin to make it sour) so eating isn’t encouraged, and hands don’t get super sticky.
This was intensely competitive at my house but you can play it alone too!
This is actually the first craft we made for this blog in 2008. It was a favorite of my preschool classes before I stepped out of the class to have my own kids!
This is a fun process art project and, of course, kids love using combs for something other than their hair!
This simple activity keeps kids busy for ages because it’s engaging! Kids love to mix colors.
AM: Brown Bear Brown Bear Color Matching
This simple printable is so much fun to use. It’s been used countless times by my students this year!
Save this for last because come on, it’s so much fun and tasty too!
