Science and art combine in this amazing and simple rainbow experiment. The kids will love to make, explore and paint rainbows.
The other day, my daughter picked up a CD and was fascinated by the rainbows that formed on it when she moved it around. We held it under the light and moved it all around and admired the bursts of color. The colors were so beautiful. We wanted more and had an idea to try to paint our rainbows.
My daughter and I love to play with ink blots, or more accurately paint blots. We make them all the time. They are so simple and fun and I love the symmetry of the blots. The mirroring of the blots gave me an idea for a winter painting.

I love to paint and I love to teach my little artist how to paint as well, so I am always dabbling with different techniques and trying to find easy to make artwork using different methods and simple shapes. I wanted us to explore the beauty of reflections in a few winter landscapes by folding and mirroring images like in an ink blot.
