Rainbow Collage

(This post may contain affiliate links. See my Disclosure Policy for details.)

I have been saving magazines and catalogs for a little while because I usually think of something fun to do with them.  I had a fun idea recently to make a giant rainbow collage and my kids and I both enjoyed doing this project together.

I drew a big rainbow on a large sheet of newsprint paper.  I wrote in the color words in color so my daughter who isn’t reading well yet knew which row was which.  Then we looked through all of our magazines for pictures in all the colors of the rainbow. We used Family Fun and Parents magazines  as well as Oriental Trading & children’s catalogs so the kids could find pictures of fun kid-friendly things that they really enjoyed.

We cut out all of the colorful pictures and glued them into each row. This is a great activity for teaching colors, rainbow order, and sorting.
 I think the finished product is beautiful! Make your own rainbow collage and tag me on Instagram with your picture!!  Or use the hashtag #teachbesideme .
