Today we were all about rainbows! My main activity for my toddler was a simple cut-and-paste rainbow color sort craft using paint chip squares and images in all colors of the rainbow. This is such a simple activity, but my daughter loved that she had “made a rainbow” all by herself.
To begin with, I had a pile of paint chip squares, so I used those to make an accordion book, held together simply with tape.
Then, my girl enjoyed cutting out the items and gluing them on the correct page. Maybe I should clarify. She wanted to cut them out herself but needed lots of help!
This was a perfect small motor skills practice activity. I did not put boxes around the items on the page, so she did not have pressure to cut “on the line.” Picking up the paper and sorting it on to the correct square was also a perfect challenge for a young preschooler or older toddler. The whole activity was just a great chance to try her hand at cutting and to practice with color sorting. And then she had a beautiful rainbow at the end of it!
