Rainbow art

I remembered making these pictures (too) many years ago in primary school. I’m not very artistic, so I used a template for my picture. You could also add words instead.

I used pencils in my colouring and I think pens would’ve been a cleaner look. You could try paint too.

  • White card
  • Colouring pens/pencils/paints
  • Crayon
  • Something to scratch with e.g. coin
  • A template (optional)
  1. Using the pens, colour in your card in a random pattern
  2. Cover the card in your crayon (pick a high contrast colour), so you can’t see the colours from the pen
  3. Scratch out a pattern (free hand or use a template)
