Once you've gathered your materials, it's time to paint the rainbow. Start by painting a large arch in red at the top of your paper. Then, paint each subsequent arch below it in the order of the colors of the rainbow. Remember, the order is red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.

Remember, the goal is to make learning fun and engaging for preschoolers. So, don't worry about the end result. The process is more important than the product. Happy painting!
