Rainbow Walk

 

Your family will create a rainbow to display at your house. This simple idea of placing a rainbow in a visible location shows community, love and hope. It lets us know that we are all in this together. Please send us your photos! Your rainbow at home and the ones you see! 

Post them in the Parent Forum Facebook Group or email them to Kimberly@Athenamontessoriacademy.com  We want to share our rainbows around! 

 

Goal

  • Create a rainbow scavenger hunt to see how many rainbows your family can find while taking a walk. 
  • Strengthen community bonds.

 

Materials

Your family can choose what medium you would like to use to create your rainbow. 

Examples:

  • Paper: Crayon,colored pencils, markers, paints, ect
  • Sidewalk and chalk
  • Window and  window markers
  • Torn construction paper and glue

 

Steps

  • As a family, choose what mediums you want to use to create your rainbow. 
  • Select the colors to make red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
  • Create a rainbow of your own or use a template.
  • Fill in the colors of the rainbow. Practice ordinal numbers by asking your child to find the first color of the rainbow, and so on.
  • When you are done, display your rainbow on a window, door or even your sidewalk. 
  • Now you get to go for a family walk!
  • Find and count the number of rainbows displayed in your neighborhood! Are there any new ones today?
