Rainbow Activities for Toddlers

Do you know why we see rainbows? That’s what I asked my kids last week. One of them suggested clouds were the answer and that’s not far off! It has to do with light reflecting off the moisture in the air, making it possible to see the colors that our eyes normally can’t separate.
