rainbow facts

Did You Know?

  • No two people see the same rainbow, in fact even our individual eyes see slightly different rainbows. If someone appears to be standing under a rainbow you can see, they will see a different rainbow at the same angle but further away.
  • A rainbow is a full circle of light. However, due to most people viewing a rainbow on the ground, we only see a semi-circle or arc of the rainbow.
  • A “moonbow” is a rare lunar rainbow or nighttime rainbow produced by light from the moon. Our eyes see it as white even though all colors are faintly present.

The Benefits

Improves fine motor skills

What are fine motor skills? Definition:  Fine motor skill is the coordination of small muscles in movement with the eyes, hands, and fingers.

Developing this skill will help your kids throughout their lives, so practicing it intentionally in different ways is great for your kiddos.

Crafts can be a big help when it comes to giving your children a chance to work on this skill.  Between the scissor work, coloring, and gluing, their fine motor skills will be given a great workout.

With that in mind, depending on your kiddo, it might be a good idea to help them by cutting some of the craft parts for them.  It’s good to work on this skill but their little hands can tire easily, so don’t overwork it.  Keep crafts fun!!
