Elmer and the Rainbow with a Go Along Craft

Elmer and the Rainbow Craft

We read the book "Elmer and the Rainbow" by David McKee today.  In this Elmer book, a rainbow has lost its colors and Elmer sets out to find the end of it.  He plans to give away his colors to make the rainbow colorful again.  The other animals worry what will happen to Elmer's colors if he gives them away.  Then they wonder if there will be a patchwork rainbow.

For our go along craft I found this printable rainbow.  After printing a couple of copies, I set out a stamp pad and square stamper.  When they finished stamping, they decorated their rainbow with animals stickers I found at Michael's.
