Rainbow Crafts For Kids
Moreover, rainbow making has an additional purpose to keep us busy and unstressed.
Being cooped up at home can be quite challenging as its a huge difference from our everyday routine, especially for kids who are used to going to school and to their extracurricular activities.
Rainbow crafts and drawing can be a fun activity for both the kids and adults, as it is fun and keeps the hands and mind occupied helping you relax for a little while.
Although times are hard and we are all stir-crazy and stressed we can always count on a rainbow on a window to make us smile as we walk down the street and give us hope for all the amazing things waiting for us after this storm.
If you are a knitter or a crocheter and you want to participate in the rainbow movement you can always make your own rainbow using brightly coloured yarns from your stash.
