R is for Rainbow

We had a blast during letter R week doing rainbow activities. There are so many wonderful ideas out there that I wish we could have done, but the week went by quickly. Here's some of the rainbow activities we during the week.

We made a rainbow book. This was an idea I had seen at Delightful Learning. There is also a video to watch on her site that helps with putting this book together. Bekah loved making her rainbow book!

We made rainbow crayons. Next time I will use cupcake liners. They took a little bit of work to get them out without liners. This was fun to do and a wonderful way to use up broken crayons. Bekah helped me unwrap all of the crayons, so it was also a great fine motor activity!

This roll a rainbow activity comes from Confessions of a Homeschooler. She has a lot of great printable activities that center around rainbows. We used a lot of her printables. This one was definitely a favorite!

Another activity we did from this same blog is the upper and lowercase letter matching.

A yummy activity we did with our rainbow theme was to make a rainbow cake. I actually took the easy way and make a funfetti cake. Bekah loved it!
