Coloring rainbows is a fun way to learn about colors, color order, and color mixing. It’s also a fantastic way to practice fine motor skills like pencil grip and control.

These rainbow coloring templates also give children a chance to practice their cutting skills. 

Here are some fun ways to use rainbow templates with your children:

1. Teach them about colors.

Learn the fun mnemonic device: Roy G Biv.

This character’s name is actually an acronym for all the colors of the rainbow in order.

With older children, you can go one step further and teach them why we see color the way we do and what causes a rainbow to appear. 

2. Host a rainbow coloring story time.

Read a story about rainbows and let children color their own rainbow cut-outs to take home. My Color is Rainbow by Agnes Hsu is one of our favorites!

It’s perfect for coloring because the arch in the story starts out white. It can’t decide what color to be, finally the arch decides to become a rainbow! 

Little ones can color along with the story. That way, they’re getting extra practice with early reading comprehension skills like sequencing.

Practice color sorting with preschoolers.

Give each child a rainbow and a handful of rainbow colored candies, buttons, or beads.
