Easy Craft Stick Rainbow Puzzle

My 老大 (lǎodà / oldest child) loves anything with 多彩 (duō cǎi / many colors, colorful), and she compulsively arranges 颜色 (yánsè / colors) in rainbow order!  Knowing her love of rainbows, I made this Chinese craft stick rainbow puzzle to reinforce the term 五颜六色 (wǔyánliùsè / colorful). 

Does your child know that there are several Chinese idioms for colorful?  Here are some others!

  • 五彩宾纷 (wǔcǎibīnfēn)
  • 丰富多采 (fēngfù duō cǎi)
  • 花花绿绿 (huāhuā lǜlǜ)
