The Colors of the Rainbow

It’s March, you guys!

With St. Patrick’s Day just a few short days away, my mind is filled with all things color.

From the bright green shamrock that’s an iconic symbol for the entire month of March to the vibrant colors of the rainbow and the pot of gold beneath it.

All that said, the colors of the rainbow are an important symbol of Christianity and springtime.

That’s why I love leaning on fun rainbow crafts and rainbow art projects this time of year. 

4 Color Rainbow Template

This simple 4 color rainbow template is perfect for little ones!

You can easily use this as a coloring sheet when homeschooling preschool or kindergarten-aged kiddos.

These fun freebies can also be a budget-friendly way to decorate for a rainbow-themed birthday party!

4 Color Rainbow Template

When I first created this 4-color rainbow template, I absolutely loved the look, you guys!

However, it quickly dawned on me that I had left out something crucial for educators.

While this template is simple and cute for coloring or decorating, it doesn’t have the proper number of arches to create the standard rainbow using the ROY G BIV color spectrum or for creating the traditional 6-color rainbows (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) we all know and love.

So, without further ado, I also created a 6-color version for color teaching purposes!

6 Color Rainbow Template

This 6-color rainbow was created for all the traditional rainbow lovers, homeschoolers, and older kiddos who simply love a color-accurate rainbow.

That said, if you have kiddos who follow the ROY G BIV spectrum while making rainbows, they will have to squeeze that indigo in there, you guys.

While I considered making a 7-color version, 6 was my max for 2 reasons.

First, it simply looked better.

Second, many teachers and homeschoolers opt to skip indigo in rainbow art projects as it can be harder to find budget-friendly paint selections with that color option.

Plus, I find that as colors bleed into one another (specifically the blue and purple) indigo tends to make its debut in rainbow projects anyway.

All that said, I created an artsy version and a plain version (just like the 4-color templates) and you can easily get creative and add a spot for indigo using either one of these free rainbow templates.

Hey guys! I’m Mary, homeschool mom of 3 amazing kiddos.

I’m so excited that you decided to check out my little corner of the world!

If you have been following our journey for any length of time, you already know that I’m obsessed with coffee, organization, and all things simple.

I’m also a huge dog lover and introvert 💗

My homeschool style is very eclectic.

I enjoy a solid mixture of structure and free range. I set goals for myself and my children each week, but I put no pressure on perfection.

We use a wide variety of curriculum in our home.

Some of our current favorites are The Good and the Beautiful, Life of Fred, Beautiful Feet Books, and Lifepac.

While my kids do spend a good amount of time learning at desks, they also spend countless hours exploring their creativity and practicing a little independence.

I love mountains, rainy days, and sitting by the campfire. 

Our family recently relocated to the PNW and we have been enjoying finding new nature spots to explore together 🙌🏼

I can’t wait to connect and share all the things I’ve learned on our new journey! 

Just a Note…

Thanks for checking out the kid activities portion of the blog! 

Typically summer is the most productive time for my blog. However, our family is currently living in temporary housing and we do not see an end in sight (thank you housing marking 😪) — meaning my workspace & supplies to produce quality content it extremely limited.

I am still working, but it’s nothing like normal.

As always, we appreciate your patience!
