Camp Sunshine Week 4

Updated: Jun 19, 2020

I love color! In fact, I love all the colors so much that I never know what to say when someone asks me my favorite. I just can't pick one! This week we are going to play, explore, and create with all the colors of the rainbow. Get ready for a fun and colorful week! ๐ŸŒˆ


This activity is kind of like finger painting, without the mess! Create a beautiful rainbow inside a ziploc bag using some basic supplies!


This project will have you spinning for joy! We'll use multicolored paper strips and a wooden skewer to make a pretty paper spinner.


In this fun experiment, we'll use Skittles to create a beautful swirled rainbow. Then, we'll build a healthy and delicious rainbow snack!


These super easy and fun experiments using paper towels will bring your rainbows to life!


Create a beautiful tealight holder that showcases all the colors of the rainbow!
