April 3rd is National Find a Rainbow Day so it’s time for a simple scavenger hunt at the Children’s Library!
Several weeks ago we had a “Colorlicious Celebration” and we had a fun scavenger hunt where we hid colored dots around the library and the children were supposed to find a dot and then color the arc of the rainbow with the color that they found. Well, that was the theory. I underestimated the OCD-nature of many children and most made sure to follow the ROYGBV order – ignoring all other colored dots until they found the right colored dot for the proper order in the rainbow. It ended up being a hoot watching kids aggressively ignoring the blue dot while seeking the orange one

<span style=”font-style:inherit;line-height:1.625″>For National Find a Rainbow Day we’re hiding the fully-colored rainbows (as seen below) around the library (14 total) and will have each child either find as many rainbows as his/her age, or find as many as they possibly can. The younger crowd likes the age tie-in, and the older crowd tends to be a bit more competitive. We generally give out stickers as prizes which seem to go over pretty well.</span>
