If your kids love ‘Rainbow’ colours as much as mine do then going on a Rainbow Nature Hunt will definitetly be an activity they will enjoy. It is a fun way to encourage them to go outside and take a closer look at their surroundings. Soon they will see that there are rainbow colours everywhere!
Some colours are obvious to spot straight away, blue skies, green grass etc. It’s when kids start to really look up close that the magic happens. It’s then that they might notice a streak of blue in some slate, yellow lichen growing on wood, berries of red, yellow and orange and stones that even sparkle!

Ideas For A Rainbow Nature Walk With Kids
- Take photos of all the objects you find and then make a colourful collage. (This would also work with the tick sheet printable)
- Use double sided sticky tape on plain paper or on the printable. Kids can stick down the flowers, leafs etc as they go along.
- Give them a paper bag or empty egg box so they can collect their nature treasures. Once back, kids can colour sort them using the activity sheet. (This one is our favourite!)
Rainbow Nature Walk With Older Kids
- Flower Identification: My kids have been enjoying rainbow nature hunts for a few years now and this time they wanted to find flowers only. Now that they are getting a little older I thought that this would be a perfect opportunity for them to practice identifying the local flowers.
The kids had a lot of fun collecting all the different coloured flowers from the garden and once inside they colour sorted them before letting loose their imaginations and creativity. A couple of hours later they had made a fairy house complete with a flower carpet that complimented flower printed wallpaper, curtains and bedding.
What started out as a 15 min walk turned out to be a day filled with questions, observations, experiments and creativity!
