Rainbow Color Collages

Earlier in the week we had great fun making giant rainbow collages. The instructions and materials needed are pretty self explanatory by looking at the pictures.

This is wonderful art work for St. Patty’s day, the Letter Rr, discussing rainbows in weather and how rainbows are symbols of God and His promises.

I have our rainbows displayed in front of the window and it looks gorgeous when the light shines through 🙂

Our daily routine has been interrupted by several storms today, resulting in me keeping the tv on for weather updates from our local news station. Little Miss became extremely interested in watching the updates and later told me she wanted to be a “weather person and a mom instead of an astronaut mom.”

When my tech savvy husband arrived I asked him to set us up something so she could pretend and as easy as “123” he had our laptop hooked up to our tv using a HDMI cord and had the screen blown up to the local forecast so she could give us her own version of the news.

We had a lot of fun playing in our weather newsroom! Snow, hail & tornadoes are headed our way… It turns out she was dead on with that too! & if your in Mexico be on the look out for 30ft of snow 😉

Of course if you don’t have the items to hook up to your tv you could always use a map or let the littles create their own on poster board.
