With St. Patrick’s Day coming up soon, I thought it would be fun to do a St. Patrick’s activity involving rainbows. Plus, rainbows are a great way to work in some practice with colors. Knowing how much my kids enjoy do-a-dot worksheets, I created a printable Rainbow Do-a-Dot Worksheet for my kids to use.
The kids were quite excited when I pulled out our do-a-dot paints and put them on a tray with the Rainbow Do-a-Dot worksheet.
I explained that they were to match the do-a-dot paint color with the color of the rainbow, and to do one dot of paint per circle.
With XGirl, I also used this as an opportunity to reinforce color learning. And for both kids, it was an exercise in one-to-one correspondence. Both kids really enjoy counting objects right now, so after completing several rows I invited the kids to count the number of dots they filled in, and they happily obliged.
At the end, they created a beautiful rainbow as part of our learning about St. Patrick’s Day!
