Rainbow Name Writing Practice

Preschool Rainbow Activities - Name Writing Practice. #preschool #rainbowcraft #preschoolcraft #namecraft #rainbows

Learning to write your name is a great skill, but it can be a bit tricky. This is a fantastic way to get in some extra practice. Just write your name down the rainbow.

Rainbow Craft Stick Patterns

This awesome rainbow activity doubles as counting and color practice.

First, you’ll want to find the perfect manipulatives. We used our favorite Rainbow Colored Counting Bears, but you could also use buttons, cereal, cars or whatever else you can think of.

Then, roll the dice, count the dots, and place that many bears on the matching color strip.

Rainbow Makers – Color Matching and Fine Motor Skills

We LOVE this combination of color matching, fine motor skills, and a little bit of STEM.

  • Kids have to match the colors to make the rainbow stripes.
  • They use fine motor skills to push the pipe cleaners through the holes.
  • STEM skills can be used to help hold all of the different pieces upright.


Making 10 Rainbows

Making 10 Preschool Math Game #planningplaytime #preschoolactivities #rainbows #preschoolprintables #playbased #preschoolworksheets #mathactivities

We love this idea for helping kids practice the early math skill of Making 10. It is part of the kindergarten common core standards, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. If you don’t have rainbow mini erasers, try using colorful buttons to go with the clouds.

Rainbow Color Patterns

There are lots of fun ways to practice these color patterns, and mixing it up keeps it feeling fresh and new. We used our rainbow color shape buttons to make these patterns, but you could use pom poms, play dough balls, math cubes, or even cereal.

Try stacking them vertically or lining them up horizontally for fun variations.

Letter or Number Sorting Rainbows

Rainbow Games for Preschool - Letter or Number Sorting #planningplaytime #preschoolactivities #rainbows #preschoolprintables #playbased #preschoolworksheets

Learning to recognize numbers and letters is a great preschool skill. We used our favorite rainbow mini erasers for this activity, but colored pom poms, buttons or other manipulatives.

Rainbow Color Threading

When we are doing our rainbow activities, we like to mix in a great variety of other skills. For this amazing game kids get to work on their fine motor skills in addition to color matching. It is SO fun, and you can use colored straws or dyed noodles to make the holes.

Rainbow Color Matching

Pinching and cliping is another way to work on those fine motor skills. Here we’ve matched that with color matching. We buy our colored clothespins from Amazon, but you can paint a bag of dollar store ones as well if you wish.

  • Shredded Paper

Rainbow Letter Matching

Rainbow Process Art – Glue Practice

Preschool Rainbow Craft - Salt Painting Process Art. #rainbowcrafts #saltpainting #processart #preschool #springpreschool #rainbows

Salt painting process art is one of our favorite preschool crafts. All of my kids love it! You’ll need the printable template, liquid glue, salt, and liquid watercolors. You can buy liquid watercolors here, or make your own using the recipe below.

To Make Liquid Watercolors:

  1. Pour 2-3 teaspoons of water in a small jar.
  2. Add 5-10 drops of food coloring to get the desired color. For darker, more distinct colors, use more food coloring.

  1. Dear,

    Thank you for sharing all those beautiful ideas.
    How can i get most of materials for preschools? are you sending it by courier? i live in the UAE. i mean once i have paid how can i get most of the materials, i am thinking of the rainbow activities , dinosaur activities, dental health activities.

    Thank you for your feedback
    Best regards,

    1. Christelle,

      You purchase the digital files with all of the printable pdfs. We do not mail anything to you. As soon as the purchase is made, you will have a link to download and print all of the files.

      You can purchase those sets individually, or if you need multiple preschool units, you may want to consider purchasing the growing bundle. It currently includes 10 preschool units with more to come. There is a significant discount when you buy that way, and you get any additional units I add for free.

      I hope that helps. Here’s the link to the bundle if that would be helpful to you.

      Amy N.
