Rainbows are whimsical, magical and just have the ability to make people smile. Kids especially seem to love rainbows and in fact, it’s one of the first thing my daughter learned to draw and continues to love drawing today. We decided to host a rainbow themed party for her upcoming 5th birthday and so I knew this would be a super fun list to share with you all.
