Everyone loves rainbows, right? And lots of little kids enjoy drawing rainbows over and over. This activity takes advantage of children’s natural love for rainbows to get them practicing correct letter formation over and over.
The next installment in my 101 Ways to Teach the Alphabet Series is an activity called Rainbow Writing.
I recently created a set of Letter Outlines printables for kids to learn their letters. A few weeks ago I shared how we used these Letter Outlines for a Button Letters activity. Well, my Letter Outlines are perfect for Rainbow Writing too!
For this rainbow writing activity, I printed small versions of several letters. I paired the printouts with markers in all the colors of the rainbow.
I encouraged XGirl to trace inside the letter using the red marker first.
Then, using the same letter, she traced inside the letter five more times using the orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple markers.
In the end, she had a beautiful set of rainbow letters. For her, this was an art project. For me, it was a great opportunity for her to practice writing her letters.
