How to Draw a Rainbow
For a quick and simple way to draw beautiful and easy rainbows, try wrapping some triangular Melissa & Doug crayons in rainbow-order with some rubber bands as shown. Slip in a piece of thick card stock or cardboard for added stability.
Invite your child to draw rainbows by moving the grouped together crayons back and forth on a sheet of paper! While drawing these rainbows, it is the perfect time to practice identifying color names.
