The world looks so bright and joyous in colors. Something colorful almost always makes us happy. Today’s topic of printable collection of coloring pages is inspired by one such colorful albeit natural occurrence. Hint: the colors fill the sky after rain. Yes, you have correctly guessed the answer. We are talking about rainbows.
Rainbow is an arc of colors visible across the sky through falling rain or shortly after. The white light of the sun gets refracted as it enters the water droplet and splits into the multiple colors that get reflected back. While there’s no clarity but the color patterns can be seen as per the acronym VIBGYOR – violet on the inside, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red on the outside.
While rainbows look like a semi-circle stretching across the sky, they are actually round like a circle. We aren’t able to see it from the ground, but the colorful circle can be visible from a flying airplane. It’s time now to check out more about the rainbows through this collection of rainbow coloring pages to print.
