Outdoor Play Party – How to Make a Snowy Rainbow
Last summer the girls and I had a great time making rainbows out of rocks
down at the beach. Searching for different coloured rocks was a lot of fun. With the winter weather…and a little bit of snow…we were inspired to make a winter rainbow. I love incorporating science and learning in play. We brought the red, blue and yellow food colouring bottles out of the pantry and into the front yard.
I had the girls make 7 snowballs each, and line them up. Then we created a rainbow using the three food colouring colours. The girls had to tell me what the colours of the rainbow were.
We combined the colours to complete the rainbow.
My favourite colour was green…the yellow, blue and ultimately green snowball, looked so pretty.
I then extended the learning by asking my daughters which of the three primary colours they thought we used most often to create the rainbow. They guessed blue. After writing down all the different colour combinations they came to the conclusion that they were correct!
How The Sun Rose had fun catching snowflakes and closely examining the snowflakes structure.
