A Rainbow of My Own

We have been on rainbow's this past week, and it has been a lot of fun.
We read the book A Rainbow of My Own by: Don Freeman
It's about a little boy who uses his imagination to play with rainbows.

After reading the book we decided we needed a rainbow of our own! But how?
Here's how...
We filled a glass 3/4 of the way full with water
Put a small mirror inside the the glass of water at an angle. Make sure the mirror is submerged.
Then we placed it in a dark area and shined the flashlight into the mirror to reflect on the wall.
And here were the results below:

Move the flashlight around as needed to look for the rainbow to appear on the wall.



As we moved the flashlight around we started to see the rainbow colors appear.
They were very excited and started naming the colors of the rainbow they saw!

What a super thing to do with kids! (Even quite fascinated this adult!). It occurs to me your kids might love my story of Merrilyn the kangaroo. I've started telling it from when she was a really tiny joey and you'll find it at http://www.kangaroosofthescrubbybush.com I add a new piece each Friday.
