10+ Rainbow Art Activities for Kids


This week has been all about rainbows, so I thought what better way to end the week than with a collection of Rainbow Art Projects for kids! Ella loved making her Rainbow Yarn Art on a DIY Paper Plate and our Rainbow Process Art, so we were excited to see what other rainbow art activities were out there for us to try (and share!)

RAINBOW ART FOR KIDS - 10 awesome rainbow art projects for kids, including rainbow process art, rainbow science mixed with art, and a few collaborative ideas for groups of kids! So many wonderful ideas in this collection of rainbow art ideas for kids

My kids love doing rainbow crafts all year round, but with all those Spring Showers and the bright bursts of blossoms, rainbows go in high request and rotation during the Spring.

While some of these rainbow art projects could be described as crafts, I personally find that they fit my criteria for an art project. Either way, as long as the principle of open-ended creation is there, the kids will enjoy themselves and create something beautiful. (For more thoughts on arts vs. crafts, check out this post.)
