Update on rainbow craft stick puzzles for preschoolers

I have a quick update to our rainbow craft stick puzzles.

A comment was left by Scott of Brick by Brick to add a “swipe of marker” to the back of each group of craft sticks to help the children separate the groups a little more easily.

I used a dot dabber and put blue, green, and red dots on the backs of each group of craft stick puzzles so the children would be able to put groups of craft sticks together a little easier…

This was definitely more easy for the children to understand. We really didn’t need to add numbers or dots or anything more than a swipe of color on each craft stick…

Besides, for many of the children it was more fun putting together “crazy rainbows” then worrying about putting together real rainbows:)

Part of making an activity successful is to explore different options for how the material is presented to the children or how the material can be be used by the children. But another way (and probably a better way) to make an activity successful is to just let the children do the activity their own way!

Rainbow books available on Amazon…
