My Emma is a tomboy to her core, but sometimes? She goes all girly on me. That’s totally fine with me, but it can take me by surprise if I’m not paying attention. One of the ways that she does it is that she goes all girly when it comes to rainbows. She loves them and I love the fact that she asks me to be apart of any craft or activity she’s doing. Because of that, I am almost always on the look out for kids rainbow crafts and kids rainbow activities. They’re so much fun and really? Who wouldn’t want to play with rainbows?!

Rainbows are not just pretty! They're fun too! These 25 kids rainbow crafts and activities are all super fun ways to play with rainbows!

Saint Patrick’s Day will be here soon and these are perfect for helping your kids celebrate Saint Patrick in a fun and healthy way. They’re fantastic as Saint Patrick’s Day science experiments! Don’t think they’re only good for that though! These would be awesome as a homeschool lesson to learn about rainbows, as a rainy day activity or anytime you want to take a break really! Some of them can be messy though so if you’re worried about your kids clothing, you may want to consider picking up a child’s art apron to help cover them.
