The Rainbow

The rainbow is waaaaay more than just colours. Not only is it a wonder of both science and magic, it reminds us of a very important message.

Just like there are lots of different colours in the rainbow, there are lots of different kinds of people in the world. And the world is a better place because of that. It would be pretty dull if we were all the same. Just like a rainbow would be without each of its unique colours!

So we want to help children remember the colours and this very important message!

The message

image description

We are not sure if there is a little pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. We’ve run really fast but we can’t get there. But we think there is something way more valuable that comes with a rainbow. A message of how to treat others. And if you learn that, you’ll have something better than gold for the rest of your life. And of course next time someone asks you what ARE the colours of the rainbow, you’ll know that too. (And it could be the final question on a really big quiz show, with the top prize being a pot of gold!)

So here goes…A way to remember the message AND the colours in one go!
