Today we walked the rainbow!

So easy to set up and we had so much fun!

Given the chance Emma would have walked all morning!

This is one of those art activities I love as the children are required to move their entire bodies!

We painted rainbow with watermelon rinds and decided that we must use our feet next…

and walked…

and walked…

and walked…


This is a great way to paint with children!

The results look fabulous and are hanging in the stairway drying!

It was a little difficult to find a spot long enough for this to dry – we have cats so keeping it on the floor would just add to the footprints – and I am not sure our feline companions would love that…

Now the BIG question is where to put them up?

I get so sentimental about hand and footprints! I might just have to find a permanent spot to hang these!!

UPDATE: we did this again with fabric paint and a big sheet of fabric! From that we made a footprint walked apron for Granny!!

Fantastic activity to do with children of any age! Rainbow walking makes the perfect get your body moving art exercise
