Rainbow Hodgepodge-of-Material Craft

We are still following the arcoíris thread in our casa! 

This actividad takes un poco of planning ahead, but is not taxing.  Inspired by a post on BilingualBabes, Sofía and I created a arcoíris, using colored pencils, on piece of sturdy construction paper.  (I had to first measure out the spaces, use pencil to connect the dots, then outline with marker and erase the pencil….uugghh!) We dug through all our craft materials and sorted them into 6 colores.  I also threw in the corresponding letters to the colores to reinforce the abecedario too!
The next día, Sofía glued the hodgepodge of craft materials onto her arcoíris according to colores.  She asked for more materials because she wanted to line them up very tightly to form a bold line.   I see the manzana has not fallen far from the tree!!  As you can see….the arcoíris is espectacular!  But then I’m biased! 


  1. Wow, your rainbow is fabulous! We loved making ours, and it's fun to see all the different kinds of rainbows you can make... I've just found one on Pinterest made entirely of fruit, super easy and edible too!

  2. I've just added this link to my Rainbow craft page :-)
