Rainbow Bubble-Fest…

“My heart leaps up when I behold a rainbow in the sky.”  ~William Wordsworth

Today we are looking out at the rainy, gloomy skies and taking matters into our own hands! We are not waiting for the sun…we are making our own rainbow right here in the kitchen! I will warn all of you ahead of time, that this activity will leave a mark. Hehehehehe! You may find your kidlets sporting rainbow coloured hands and arms for the rest of the day!

Let’s get started…there are 4 easy steps and I’ve organized it all in picture form so there is less talking from me.

And here’s what you’ll get…

Sudsy rainbow peaks, bubble mittens, and a lot of happy, colourful children! You can’t beat that on a yucky, grey day!

And it just so happens, that The Outlaw Mom is running a rainbow linky party this week!! So we are joining in! After you enjoy this post , link up your best rainbow activity at the very end of this page. Grab THIS button…


…and share it on your post that you link up  here. That way, people who visit your site, can linked back to the party and check out everyone else’s fabulous ideas! Make sense? Phew!

Now this is where you link-up…

    • Yes, it will…at least for the day, anyway. It was mostly the red that stayed on the skin, but all the babies came back the next day clean and stain-free. I used sleeved smocks for some of the little ones who like to dive right into a messy activity 😉

  11. Hey,

    I am wondering if you found that the food coloring stained the children’s skin. I work in a childcare centre and would like to try this activity with my group.
