If you’ve followed along with Life Over C’s at all, you know that I have a love for printables! All my kids, ages 4 to 12, love using printables to help learn different topics. Having a good theme for printables is also something I have a thing for. This week I found 20+ Rainbow printables for learning that I’m excited to share with you! Rainbows are fascinating for kids, and lets be real for adults too, why not use the fascination to help teach our kids?
20+ Rainbow Printables for Learning
The most recent rainbow themed printable set that I made was this Free Color Matching Fishbowl Printable For Preschoolers. How fun is this? One option is to start with the fish cut outs in a sensory bin. Have the child pull the fish out of the sensory bin and match it to the fishbowl on the printable. Kids will love it!
We also have this fun Free Printable Rainbow Bear Counting Cards. If your kids love rainbow bears and are learning number recognition or learning how to count to 10, this set is perfect for you! It can also be adapted to help children with simple math.
