We’ve been on a bit of a Noah kick lately, so I thought I’d share one more super fun rainbow project we did a few years back. Of course, this also fits perfectly into the upcoming St. Patrick’s day holiday. To get a Christian perspective on St. Patrick’s day and more lesson ideas, be sure to check out this post.
I was inspired to do this project when I I spotted this picture on Pinterest. I quickly headed over to smART class blog to get the details.
To begin, make an engineering print (super fun and super cheap!) with your child (or class) as the focus. I decided to do our poster as if Chipmunk was holding the rainbow in her hands. Here’s our starting picture:
Have the kids (if they are older) paint a rainbow onto the picture.
If you’re doing this for Noah’s ark, you could also use some clip art from this site and paint a really big rainbow directly over the ark.
After we hung this poster up as an example, we made small versions with each of the daycare kids. I started with a picture of each child, holding their hands out. I love using Walgreens for pictures, because you can take the pictures, upload, and pick them up 10 minutes later!
Chipmunk decided to make rainbow dots instead of bows, but it still turned out great! Again, if you want, put an ark as the focal point instead.
Finished! Love it!!
