Materials For Eye Dropper Rainbows

For this project you'll need:
*You actually do need watercolor paper.  If you use copy paper, construction paper, or drawing paper the water droplets will not bead up and you'll end up with a muddled mess!

    Draw Rainbow Outline & Prepare Paint

    While you could try to make your eye dropper rainbow without any outline to help, I wouldn't recommend it!  Rainbows are tricky- especially for kids!  I took a large serving bowl and traced the top half.  Then I just extended the lines straight down to the bottom of the page.

    Then add the other color sections by following your outer curve all the way around, but move in about 3/4" to 1".  You'll need 6 sections all together.  Try to make your pencil markings as light as you can- it is too hard to erase them after you've added the droplets.

    Mix up your liquid watercolors and set out 1 eye dropper per color.  We mixed ours with about 1 part water to 1 part liquid watercolor.  This kept the colors nice and bright. 

    Make A Rainbow

    Show your child how to use an eye dropper by squeezing the bulb, dipping the end into the paint, and then releasing the bulb.  My girls have used eye droppers plenty of times, but they still seem to need to be taught every time!

    Remind your child to do their best to make tiny drops instead of giant puddles.  They can fill in one color section at a time, but we learned that it was easier to do the all the colors of on the left side of the rainbow first,  and then go back and complete the right side.  My girls are both right-handed, and this kept them from having to worry about smearing  the colors with their arm as they worked.

    The colors drops will bead up like this, and it will take several hours before they soak into the paper.

    When your rainbows are finished, set them aside to dry.  Move them carefully so that the water droplets don't roll off the paper or into each other!
