Many rainbow crafts can be made out of paper. Starting with markers and paper is always a fun place to start.
A fun simple rainbow can be created by placing a small mirror in a glass and then filling the glass with water. Place the glass near a window and then reflecting the sun onto a wall showing a rainbow.
A rainbow is colored light that comes from sunlight shining through water and bending.
