What do you get if you combine a rainbow and a scavenger hunt? A rainbow toy hunt!
It’s so much fun and a great way to practice colors with kids.
Preschoolers love to move and learn and play with colors so a rainbow hunt is perfect for them! You don’t need any special supplies, just walk around the house and look for toys.
We go through the house and find different objects in the colors of the rainbow starting with red. As we walk around we chant, “We’re going on a color hunt, we’re going on a color hunt. We’re going to make a rainbow! We’re going to make a rainbow!”
Once we had a large pile of each color we organized them into a rainbow. Then we took turns playing I Spy using our creation. Lots of fun for everyone!
