"R" is for Rainbow and a Really Amazing Rebound!

This past week, I enjoyed recovering from the Half Marathon I ran last Sunday.  I was just a little sore for a few days and I look forward to starting back to early morning runs again this week to stay in shape as much as possible.  

Last week was busy as always and we did a fun "R" craft as my 4 year old continues with her Preschool Alphabet Boxes.  I got this "R" craft idea HERE.

Below are pictures of the colorful craft:

I printed a "R" template from and we glued rainbow colored strips over the template.  I told my girls the R.O.Y. G. B.I.V. trick to remember the colors of the rainbow in order.

Here are the strips covering the entire "R" template

I then turned the "R" template over on the white paper and cut out the shape.  We then glued the rainbow "R" to black construction paper. My kids said they liked this craft the best since it was so colorful and easy!

Since we are in March Madness now with college hoops, I wanted to share this exciting video clip of a high school basketball game that a friend shared on Facebook.  "R" is for rebound too and check out how this high schooler made one awesome rebound for a victory!

Congratulations on that run! Way to go!

I noticed unPlanned on your shelf. What an amazing book that is! I reviewed it here:

Have a wonderful day!

A half marathon, impressive! Thanks for stopping by to read "Thank God it started with prayer..." I enjoyed participating in NOBH, and am now a fan. By the way, I love the R rainbow activity. I have a teen and a twee, but I'm sure they would have loved something like that when they were small.
Peace and good to you.

Hi Tracy,

That rainbow craft is so fun and bright. I can see why your children loved it "the best." Now that you've accomplished your first half marathon, would you do it again?

Hi Annie Kate!
Thanks for the congrats and for stopping by! I loved your review on the book Unplanned :)

Hi LeAnn,
Thanks for your kind comments and for stopping in! Glad you enjoyed the post and video! Amazing basket for the win huh?

Hi "Beloved"
I'm glad you enjoy the NOBH and glad to have you! Thanks for stopping over here at my blog and leaving a comment :)

HI NOreen,
I'm glad you enjoyed the craft...Would I do the half again? I would do it again, but to stay focused on training weekly is a challenge and when I did my long runs on Saturday that was a challenge especially as soccer season started. But, it was a fun race and I loved "people watching" and hearing the crowds cheer... Definitely a different and fun environment compared to the quiet training runs with my partners :)
