Painting Rainbows With Cork For Preschoolers
Do you love painting rainbows? As an early years teacher I really enjoyed rainbow painting with preschool kids. It was always so fun. We often painted and sang at the same time.
Whenever we painted rainbows or used lots of different colours we would sing the rainbow song.
I lived in New Zealand where the native language is Maori and we would sing and learn both the colours in English and in the Te Reo Maori language. Teaching in two languages was so much fun.
Today we have a fun and simple rainbow colours painting craft which comes as a free printable download. This preschool craft uses a wine cork and is super fun, quick and easy for young children to paint. Enjoy.
