Kids all over the country and world are making rainbows and placing them in their windows, in an effort to stay connected and spread hope and positivity. I heard about how one awesome mom started it locally in Kodiak, Alaska so I took my kids on a road trip this morning to hunt for rainbows (after making our own) - we found 25!!! The squeals of excitement and joy from the backseat as we discovered rainbows were heaven to my ears...we could all use a little bit of that in life lately. And trust me, it doesn't just bring joy to the kids.
Haven’t seen any in your town yet? Start the trend!
Rainbows already up? Consider making some for the businesses in your area that are still open, and ask them to help spread the hope. Sounds like a great service project to me.
Here are some ideas to get you started! Spread the love!

In other news: it’s National Storytelling Day! We got this prompt from writers digest, and we’d love to hear your stories!
You and a friend have decided to try and follow a rainbow to see if the end holds a pot of gold. But when you finally reach the end, you find something much more valuable than a pot of gold—and it changes your life. Write this scene.
