Location: wherever you like! (watch online)

Supported by John Lyon's Charity

We're going to get crafty and creative making suns, rain and rainbows. Here are the materials you'll need: 
•    Items that are the colours of the rainbow. They can be anything you like: leaves, recycled paper, tissue paper, wrappers, flowers. Please prepare these colourful scraps by cutting or tearing them up. 
•    3 pieces of white card, one cut into the shape of a rainbow
•    A round sponge (or a sponge cut into a circle)
•    2 bowls
•    Water
•    Yellow and blue liquid food colouring
•    Cotton wool balls
You'll also need some child-safe glue. We'll make some during the session, for which you'll need:
•    A bowl, wooden spoon, plain flour, water, salt
•    A jar to store leftover glue (it can last up to 2 weeks in the fridge)

Things could get a little messy! We'd recommend preparing an area with towels / cloths, and wearing things that you don't mind getting grubby.
