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
What You Do:
- Starting from the top of the pot, have your child paint a red stripe around the circumference of the terra cotta pot.
- 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!
- 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!
