Rainbow Craft

I, of course, learned about rainbows as a child. What I did not learn, as a child, was ROY-G-BIV. Do you know what that is? I hadn’t heard of this at all until my husband told me, so as an adult. Just in case you are in the same boat as me, ROY-G-BIV is an acronym for the colors of the rainbow and the order in which they appear.

R- Red
O- Orange
Y- Yellow
G- Green
B- Blue
I- Indigo
V- Violet

Crazy right? Acronyms can be silly but I honestly wouldn’t have been able to tell you the exact colors and order of those colors until my husband told me about ROY-G-BIV! 

So in an effort to let my daughter realize the easy way to remember the colors of the rainbow and in which order, I am telling my daughter all about ROY-G-BIV while we make this beautiful, whimsical rainbow craft!
