You can create an easy rainbow scenery drawing. It's not hard! You'll need a pencil, an eraser, colored pencils, crayons, or markers.

You can even make your rainbow look just as it would in real life. Did you know that the colors of the rainbow always occur in the same order?

Scroll down for a downloadable PDF of this tutorial.

You can use the pretend name Roy G. Biv to help you remember the order of the colors. Each letter stands for the name of a color, like this:

  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Indigo (dark blue)
  • Violet (purple)

To make your rainbow true to life, you will want to start with red at the top and violet at the bottom.

Because rainbows follow rain showers and storms, they are often used as a symbol of hope.

This usage dates back as far as the Bible book of Genesis, written around 3,500 years ago. This document reports that rain fell for more than a month, flooding the land even over the tops of the mountains.

When the water dried up, the rainbow served as a promise that the world would never again be completely flooded with water.
