Rainbow Themed Playgroup Activity

Start your playgroup off by quizzing them on their colors. Gather some colored plastic cups, baskets or bags and have each child pick one. Go outside and have the kids find items that are the same color as their cup, basket or bag. Have them find as many same colored items as they can in 5 minutes. Set a timer and let them know when the time is up. Then let them come together as a group and compare the items they found. If you see a yellow item in a green cup, this is a teaching opportunity. Sort through the items and make sure they are put in their appropriate place.

For a craft you can use colored construction paper and glue stick to make rainbows. If the kids are old enough to use scissors, let them cut the paper themselves. If they are younger you may want to have some pre-cut pieces. Mimic them like the picture below.
