This rainbow craft-tivity works well when children are learning about Noah’s Ark, and it’s a very simple project to prepare and make.
To prepare, cut coffee filters in half so that you have semi-circles.
Have children decorate half of a coffee filter with washable markers. Make sure the markers are washable or water-based so the colors will “bleed” or spread when water is added.
Place small cups of water around the table for children to share and give each child an eye dropper. Have children use the dropper to drop “rain” over the coffee filter, and watch the colors blend together to make beautiful rainbows.
Some children get carried away with the water drops, so make sure children don’t wash away all of their color with water.
