Rainbow Art for Kids

Set up this art activity by giving a quick little lesson on symmetry; symmetry is a mirror image.  Basically what is on one side, will be the same on the other.

Fold a piece of paper in half.  

Using the colors of the rainbow, squirt the colors ROYGB(I)V on one side of the paper.

Carefully fold the paper in half along the folded line and press your hand up and down, back and forth to help print the rainbow on the other side of the paper.

Next, unfold the paper and watch the rainbow appear!!

 Oh, my kiddos were so excited over this part!

And indeed, each side of our rainbow looked exactly like the other half!

After it dried, we cut off the excess white paper and glued our Blotto Rainbow onto a piece of blue construction paper.

Then we added cotton ball clouds to the bottom.
