Rainbow Order

First Grade Painting & Drawing Activities: Rainbow Order

A rainbow pot will brighten up any room in the house. Use it for planting herbs or for holding pencils. Decorating a terra cotta pot with paint is a great way for your little one to learn the colors of the rainbow and how to paint them in order.

What You Need:

  • Terra cotta pot
  • Tempera or acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush

What You Do:

  1. Starting from the top of the pot, have your child paint a red stripe around the circumference of the terra cotta pot.
  2. While this is still wet, have your child paint the next color in the rainbow just below the red stripe. The colors may blend a bit, which makes the pot even prettier!
  3. Encourage your child to continue painting the rainbow colors in order until the entire pot is covered. Allow to dry and fill it with whatever you like!
