Create a Beautiful Rainbow Window


Reggio inspired rainbow window that casts color around the room

Everyone who comes over really loves our Rainbow Window.  It casts tons of color all over the room and on to anyone who is in the room.  Everyone looks very colorful when they are in the room in the afternoon! We love the Rainbow Window because it gives the room an extra added touch of wonder and whimsy! It looks so pretty!


It started off as this.....


gorgeous and easy rainbow sun catcher craft
I had an idea after we used these translucent color chips at the park for a playdough/chalk playdate


rainbow craft for kids
I got out the scotch tape and the translucent color chips and started making strips of bingo chips


kids sun catcher craft
when the sun shines through, they create a rainbow in the room!


So simple, yet so fun and pretty! 


introducing "cascading rainbow sun catchers"




easy and fun rainbow suncatcher craft with bingo chips




easy and fun craft and great fine motor



Then I found and bought these...........


Some of them I laminated, and some I did not laminate.


Then we changed the window because the cello sheets cast more color around the room than the color chips. However we really love the color chips and the cascading rainbow sun catchers that we made. So we moved them to another window in the room.

Here are some pics of the way our Rainbow Window looks now!

The large cello sheets are taped in the window with scotch tape.
The smaller bits are pasted to the window with mod podge.
We just cut and tore pieces into random shapes and sizes.
The mod podge will come off if you try to peel it off and you can wipe your window totally clean with rubbing alcohol. So don't fret, it is not permanent.















this was before we finished the last set on the right.

this was right before we did the last window, see it is bare in this pic.

this was also right before we did the last window, see it is bare in this pic.







Here is where the Cascading Rainbow Sun Catchers are moved to.






Here are some older pics from when they were in the Rainbow Window.
