Rainbow Arts and Crafts For Kids
When you’re crafting with young children, there is an added bonus that we don’t always see. They are learning! I just love watching the eyes of my kids when they are crafting. You can almost see little gears working their magic in their mind.
These rainbow arts and crafts for kids help to teach some basic art fundamentals. Primary colors, secondary colors, and color mixing. They also help with cutting skills, following directions, and experimenting.
Some of these crafts are more suited for preschoolers. They teach the basics, have simple instructions, and will hold their attention.
Other projects work better for kindergarten. They teach primary and secondary colors and they can be open-ended.
These art projects are not limited to the classroom. They make great Sunday School crafts, rainy day activities, or birthday party games.
