Surprise Rainbow Drawings

There have been so many wonderful pictures of rainbows that people have put up in their windows to bring cheer to others, support the NHS, and remind us that even in times of darkness there is light and hope waiting for us just around the corner. We have been making our own surprise rainbow to hang up in our window.

Make sure you follow my crafts board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make a surprise rainbow you will need:

  • Washable pens
  • Black permanent marker
  • Kitchen roll/ filter paper
  • Pipette/ spray bottle
  • Water

Start your surprise rainbow by drawing your rainbow across your page, leaving a gap between each colour to allow it to spread.

Colour over each line with the black permanent marker.

Finally using a pipette or a spray bottle spray the rainbow. The washable markers under the black pen should start to bleed out and across the paper.

It really does make a pretty picture.  It would also be a fun activity to do as a preschooler writing activity.  You could write the letters in coloured pen, then get your little one to trace over them in the black pen, before adding the water.

If you liked my surprise rainbow be sure to check out my glue sun catchers, paper plate rainbow, and paper plate and pasta rainbow.
