Rainbow Scrape Art
Let's make a rainbow! We added dots in a line in rainbow order (rainbow colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) and carefully scraped across with a ruler to create a rainbow.

What is the order of the rainbow colors? Let's make your kinder toys slide down the rainbow.
