Rainbow Sensory Play Ideas for Toddlers

What could be better than sensory play and rainbow colors! Our sensory play posts on this site are some of our most popular and it's one of my favorite activities to do with toddlers. These activities would be great for a color theme  or a sensory based St Patrick's Day activity. 

If you are going to set up some of these fun rainbow sensory play activities, you might like to start by reading some color themed books - see my recommendations HERE. 

One of my favorite color books is Eric Carle's 'My Very First Book of Colors' - you can find that one HERE on Amazon.
