March is a lovely month for Rainbows. Your children might spot them in the sky overhead.
They may hear about the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow on St. Patrick’s Day.
Looking at rainbows is a fantastic opportunity to reinforce learning about colours.
You can have lots of fun seeing rainbow colours in lovely bubbles
Have fun with your children painting rainbows.
You could paint their hands in the colours of the rainbow. Cut them out and mount them on the wall in the shape of a rainbow.
Colourful Dancing Rainbows
Have little crystals,
One lovely idea is to
Hang prisms/beads around the room.
Position them so they catch the light.
Let the children lie down on their cushions and just be still watching the colours dance.
You may play some gentle music in the background very softly.
Nb; your own demeanour is important. As you become totally relaxed the children will follow suit.
If you have a parachute like the one shown in the image the children can have great fun.
How about singing the rainbow song.
The children all lie on the floor on mats/cushions
you and other adults or older children move the parachute gently up and down over them
sing the rainbow song or have it playing in the background
Very calming and relaxing
This is a nice version
Sing a Rainbow is taken from their new hit DVD ‘Kids’ Favourite songs’.
