With spring just around the corner, it’s the perfect time of year to make some rainbow art for kids. All you’ll need is some oil pastels, some watercolor paints, and some kids ready to create!
Follow our Art for Kids Pinterest Board!
We’ve had quite a few rain showers and have been searching those rainy skies for rainbows. We haven’t found our first rainbow of the year yet, so why not create our own! (This post contains affiliate links.)
The kids are becoming pros at using watercolors and oil pastels since those seem to be our art materials of choice lately, so we got them out and used them to make our rainbows! (We used the same materials to make our Watercolor Flowers recently. Be sure to check them out!)
