Rainbows are one of the most beautiful natural wonders and can teach us so much about color. Rainbows come out when you least expect it – like after a storm. I love Rainbows and was taught when you see one to make a wish because rainbows are good luck and at the end of is a pot of gold!
- A bowl filled with water
- Food coloring
- Rectangles of black construction paper
- Paper towels
Instructions for Method #1:
Drip a little drop of food coloring in the bowl of water
Wait for 20-60 seconds
Dip a piece of black black paper in the water
Take the black pieces out of the water.
Set the pieces of black paper to dry on paper towels
Instructions for Method #2:
Dip the black construction paper in water for 10-15 seconds
Take it out and drip 2 drops of nail polish
Check out the different colorful designs it creates!
What Happens Next:
The color spreads across the surface of the water within a couple of seconds and dries quickly on the surface of the water, creating a multicolored film!
Once the paper is dry, tilt the paper in different directions to see your rainbow patterns appear. I recommend holding it next to a sunny window for best results.
