Step 1: Gather all of your materials and break out the markers and crayons. Be sure to print your rainbow cutout onto cardstock paper. Have your little ones color in each column with the color that matches the dot at the top. You can use markers, crayons, watercolors, stickers, or stamps, to fill in each column. Make it fun! When you’re finished coloring, cut out the square.
