We love rainbow activities! We created rainbow self correcting name puzzles to work on spelling our first and last names for homeschool preschool!

I cut the color arcs from craft foam. This puzzle would be entertaining and educational for kids left as it is to learn colors and rainbow order.
Using the craft foam allows the puzzle to be stuck to windows or the side of the bath tub! All you need to do is add a little bit of water to get the foam to stick like we did with our Jack and the Beanstalk craft!
Our five year old is working on spelling her last name while our two year old is learning to recognize and spell his first name! All the names have six letters so it worked perfectly to write a letter on each color. When they put the rainbow in order their name is spelled correctly!
You can see that I edited out our last name here but I couldn't resist sharing this photo anyway! I love how D was pointing to each letter as E helped him name them all. What a fantastic collaborative activity with so much literacy learning included!
