This summer to help keep us busy and stop those cries of ‘I’m bored’ VARTA have set a series of Creative Summer Challenges. L and I have been having a blast completing them and learning something new, so it is my pleasure to share them with you.
VARTA Creative Summer Challenge #2 – Make a Rainbow
This was such a simple but fun way to spend an hour, inside, out of the sun!
With a VARTA torch and a prism we made rainbows on the wall.
I loved the simplicity of this task, though I think when I was explaining refraction and lights waves and colours I baffled both the child and myself.
All we had to do was take the torch and shine it through the prism at different angles until a rainbow was created.
I was amazed about just how long this kept L entertained, truly amazed by the little rainbow he had created he wondered if his fairy (we have a a fairy door and resident fairy Smiffle at home) would be proud of him and pleased with the rainbow.
As fairies love both rainbows and science I was pretty certain that Smiffle would indeed be very proud.
With this confirmed we went back to shining lights and making rainbows.
A brilliant and easy challenge from VARTA.
