Supplies Needed:

  • Colored Craft Paper
  • Letter "R" Cutout
  • Paint (I used watercolors)
  • Paint Brush
  • Glue
  • Markers



Set Up:

We took our letter "R" cutout and proceeded to paint it with our watercolors.  As much as I encouraged my son to experiment with colors like blue and red he couldn't help himself but to go for the black and brown paint.  Ha.  So his rainbow ended up being... not very rainbow like, but he had a blast painting it.  We let them dry then pressed them between two books for a little bit so they would lay flat before gluing them down.

When we finished we talked about different colors and where we can find them (ie apples can be red, green or yellow, grapes can be red and green, watermelon is red/white/green)
