This is something my children and I did a few weeks ago in light of the current pandemic. We decided to spread some colour and happiness to our neighbourhood after seeing similar artworks circulating social media. As a lot of children are at home this could be the perfect activity to spread some positivity and to uplift their moods!


  • 1 White cardboard poster or paper
  • 1 Paints
  • 1 Primary colour chart
  • 2 Painbrushes
  • A Handful Cotton balls for clouds
  • 2 Glitter
  • 1 Pencil
  • 1 Demo pic of a rainbow
  • 1 Glue


  1. First step is to outline your rainbow using a pencil or a small paintbrush with yellow paint as yellow is an easy colour to cover. Make sure you look at your rainbow demo pic to see how much space you need for each colour.
  2. Once your outline is done you can start painting! Make sure you mix your colours using the primary colour chart to show you how to mix the colours you will need. After you've painted the rainbow let it dry before proceeding to the next step.
  3. Once your rainbow is dry, get some glue and start sticking cotton balls on the bottom corners of your rainbow to replicate clouds. You can make them as fluffy as you like!
  4. Once your clouds are stuck on, you can use some glue on the rainbow and add glitter to it to make your rainbow shine!
  5. Once you're finished put some blu tac on your rainbow and pop it up onto your window to spread some light and happiness to your neighbourhood!

  • something positive for the kids to do


  • What a lovely idea. This surely would brighten up anyone’s day. Too cute ????


  • I’ve seen a lot of this type of thing on social media lately. Any artwork the children do would look great decorating the windows of the street.


  • This is really lovely and cheerful.


  • In my estate I have only seen one house do the rainbow… it’s a rainbow love heart that takes up their entire window. My kids love it. It is a nice idea that got started.


  • This is so bright and colourful


  • I recently entered a Facebook competition to win vouchers for photos of rainbows the kids had made. It’s obviously a trend at the moment, I haven’t seen any in our local area though :(

    • It is a delightful way to spread positivity and good on you for participating in this activity. :)
