Rainbow Craft Painting using Marshmallows
Who else loves marshmallows as much as we do?

If you do not have marshmallows at the current moment, you can try using cotton balls!

Learning Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers
How can you turn this fun rainbow craft into a learning activity?
Talk about the colors, the shapes and what colors mix together to create new colors.
Ask questions like, “What colors do you see?” or “This is the color red!”
Instead of a rainbow craft, you can try a green leaf clover or a golden coin!
Count them for a more advanced approach and create patterns!
See how many golden coins your preschooler can make by using number flashcards 1-10 and playing while learning!
The great thing about easy activities for kids such as this is that it can work for a differentiated set of ages.
Open ended play allows for so much fun at your child’s pace and you can totally add in a bit of a learning approach as mentioned up above.
