Simple Things: Drawing rainbows together

Drawing rainbows with crayons
At playgroup today all the children (from 2 to 5 years of age) enjoyed the drawing most of all. Together we sat on the floor, with plain white large sheets of paper and thick, bright crayons.
Some children started talking about rainbows as we had just used the rainbow shakers with all the different coloured ribbons - we simply tried to remember all the colours in the rainbow song. Some children drew thick lines, some drew thin, some scribbled all the colours all over the paper.

Everyone enjoyed it and asked if we could do drawing again next week. It showed me that sometimes unplanned, simple activities are best especially if we follow the children's lead.
