Playgroup art & craft: rainbows

Yesterday afternoon when the rain finally stopped and a little bit of sun came out we ran outside to check for rainbows and were rewarded with this beautiful sight:

I don't find winter a very inspiring theme for our art activities. We don't have snow, so no cute little cotton-ball snowmen for us. Here it's just rain, hail and cold winds. But rainbows - they are lovely at any time of year. 

Using some large sheets of paper cut into semi-circles, our dot paints (bottles of paint with circular sponge tips similar to these) and a colourful assortment of glittery stuff, the children made beautiful rainbows. A cheery art activity for a winter's day.
