Rainbow Color Fun

We've continued our theme weeks and last week we had a lot of fun with rainbow colors.  Pinterest helped with finding different themes, but with my girls rainbows was always at the top of the list.  There are so many things you can do with colors.  We tried some really fun new things and they had a blast with them! 
1. We colored with sidewalk chalk. 
2. They did a rainbow scavenger hunt and found things outside and in that matched their colored egg cartons.

3. We colored white flowers.  This took/is taking longer than I thought it would, but it's been fun to see the change in the flowers all week.

4.  Kool-Aid colored the girls hair.  This was a surprise and they loved it!  My oldest had gotten the new American Girl Doll Isabelle recently and she came with pink hair to put in.  She wanted to match her doll, so we dip dyed hers to match.  I found great directions HERE from Tips from a Typical Mom.  It was super easy!  For my little one, we just did a chunk of purple.  Now they say not to rinse, but it was REALLY dark, so we rinsed hers after we dyed it.  I used the instructions for that HERE from

5. Lastly, we made Spaghetti Slime.  This is fun and different and (again) easy.  They had fun just squishing it and braiding it.  I found that HERE from The 36th Avenue.

So, What kind of summer crafts have you been making??
