Rainbow Coloring Pages

Rainbows spark creativity and invite children to be playful with colors. Much like the magic of a rainbow, each page can be as vivid and unique as the imagination of every young artist. Coloring offers fun for all ages and helps improve hand strength and fine motor skills. On this page, we celebrate this colorful diversity, and go beyond that with a game!

3 dice, 7 colors - How much are you willing to risk?


  1. Choose a rainbow from the page and print a copy for everyone. If different rainbows appeal to you, just make sure that there are the same number of bands in each player's image.

  2. You will need at least one die, but three would be ideal. You'll also need colored pencils or markers.

  3. If you want to be authentic, use these seven colors: red, orange, yellow, green, indigo, blue, and violet.

How to play:

  1. The next player rolls, first with one die, then decides whether to roll with the second and then the third die. (If using only one die, re-rolls are counted.)Place the pencil between the two fires and spin it. (Not just a lazy spin, if possible, let it go around several times).

  2. If the total value of a player's rolls exceeds seven, they cannot color during that round.

  3. A player can stop rolling at any time. If they rolled with one die, they can color one band; if with two dice, two bands; if with three dice, three bands.

  4. So, if someone rolls a six at first, it's wise to stop there, as even rolling a two on the second attempt would be unfavorable. However, if you roll a one and then a two, you still have a good chance with a third die, since even a four would work, keeping the total of the dice at seven. Happy coloring!

Draw your own with AI tools!

These rainbow coloring pages above were created by Dall-E, an AI image generator. Did you know you also can do this? For example for the simple rainbows in the "rainbow basics" category we entered the following request:

"A simple and bold outline of a large, arching rainbow with wide bands of space for coloring, set against a clear sky. Include fluffy clouds at both ends of the rainbow. The style should be clear and simple, suitable for young children."

It's important to phrase the requests precisely. Worth emphasizing that these would be coloring pages, so we asked for no colors, just outlines in black and white, in a printable format. Occasionally, we had to ask for a redraw, but overall, we are happy with the results. We hope you are too! Feel free to use these or generate your own coloring pages.

Oh, and where is Dall-E exactly? It's available in ChatGPT which you can sign up for here.
