Rainbow Discs

Activity for an individual child

Age group: 18-40 months

Duration of activity: 20 minutes

Materials:

  • 6 paper plates
  • Scissors
  • Red, yellow, and blue cellophane
  • White craft glue

Here is a way for your child to truly see the world through rose-colored lenses or through lenses of any other color. This activity can also serve as an introductory lesson on mixing colors.

  1. Put two paper plates together and cut a hole in the center about the size of a plum.
  2. Cut a piece of colored cellophane slightly larger than the hole.
  3. Glue the cellophane to the top of one plate to cover the hole.
  4. Set the second plate on top of the first and help your child glue them together. Now you have a rainbow disc for your child to look through.
  5. Repeat these steps to make two more discs in the remaining colors. Show your child how to overlap the discs to create new colors.
