Rainbows are having a moment! Did you know rainbows are not only a symbol of peace but are also believed the bring hope, luck and good fortune. It is so fitting then that we have all embraced them in our windows as the symbol of hope and pride for our NHS heroes.
Now with Pride month around the corner we wanted to round up our favourite rainbow products so we can all add a pop of colour to our play spaces and celebrate their symbol of diversity and individuality with our children.
If you are looking to add a pop of colour to your playroom or children's bedroom, you might want to personalise Karin Akesson Design's Follow Your Rainbow Print with your child's name or choose a Happy Mantra Flag from Nelly's Treasures to hang on the wall, with the message 'may your day be filled with rainbows'. If the whole family are shading under a rainbow, choose Rachel Gale's Be A Rainbow Print which could be personalised with a family name, child's name or a nickname to add a playful touch.
Encourage conversations about diversity and inclusiveness with children from an early age with a pick from our book shelf. Rainbow Colours by Juliana Perdomo encourages colour recognition and hand eye coordination through the beautiful layered rainbow pages, whilst also celebrating the rainbow of colours in the world around us and in our children's faces. Everybody Counts by Kristin Roskifte celebrates everyone's place in the world through a series of individual stories which collide in a wonderful rainbow of illustrated people.
If you are looking to show someone you care with a message in the post or a thank you for that wonderful gift that made everyone smile? These fab Thank You Cards and Rainbow Cards (both blank inside) from Rachel Gale are the perfect home for a special lockdown letter to the grandparents.
Perhaps you had a craft-obsessed kid and are looking for something special to work on over the summer holidays. Paper Town Crafts is your one stop shop for easy craft kits that will keep big and little kids entertained. We love their Rainbow Wand Craft Kit and Rainbow Banner Craft Kit. No craft draw needed...just add children!
And finally, if you're looking for a new baby gift or a bedroom accessory that packs some sparkle then Sparklechild's Rainbow Cloud Mobile is the perfect addition to your Pride celebrations. Which way to the living room disco?!
