ok, this really isnt a craft idea, i dont think, but its cool for the kids.

fill a clear glass with water, all the way to the top. put the glass on a bright sunny window sill and let the edge of the glass project out over the inside sill a little.

put a sheet of white paper on the floor, beneath the glass and a rainbow will magically appear. the water in the glass acts like a prism and bends the sun's rays, making a rainbow of color.

heres another easy decoration u can make.get 7 little glass bottles with lids or corks- no lables or writting on them. add food coloring to the water to make 7b seperate colors:red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. sit them on a window sill and watch the colors shine.
hope this one is ok for u all- my 6 yr lovesw having his own rainbow in his room!!
