Rainbow Bathtub Puzzle

This RAINBOW puzzle is made from foam sheets.  Did you know that they will stick to bathtub walls when wet?  FUN!  The rainbow theme is also a great way to get into the St. Patrick's Day spirit!

I started by tracing one of our mixing bowls onto regular white paper. 

Then I drew the arcs of the rainbow.
{This is where having a compass would have been handy!}

Next I used the template to cut out the rainbow colors from the foam sheets.


OK - so a true rainbow has 7 colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet) but the foam sheets I found were pretty close and simply saying 'purple' is so much easier for kids!

The kids were excited for bathtime tonight knowing they had a rainbow puzzle to complete!

But they were especially excited when I told them that they could spray on some shaving cream clouds once they finished their rainbow!

Have fun!
