Rainbows (age 5-7)

*We’ve launched our official new programme for Rainbows – you can find out everything you need to know here. The current programme can still be used until September 2019 but you can buy all the new programme resources here.*

Rainbows learn by doing!

They make a mess learning to cook or exploring science, enjoy sleepovers and use games, stories and songs to learn about the world.

The girls follow the Rainbow jigsaw programme under these themes:

  • Look: Rainbows use games, songs and creativity to open their eyes to the world around them and explore their own community and different cultures.
  • Learn: Rainbows learn everything they can through fun activities like crafts, making healthy recipes and visiting interesting places.
  • Laugh: Rainbows have loads of fun celebrating and belting out songs. Slumber parties – sometimes in really unusual places like museums or aquariums – are always a hit too!
  • Love: Rainbows learn about working in a team, fairness and sharing, and being kind and helpful to other people.

When a girl’s coming to the end of her time as a Rainbow, the section’s mascot Olivia helps her to learn about moving on to Brownies. And because there’s a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow, her unit will throw a special ‘Pot of Gold’ party to celebrate the next step in her guiding journey.

Rainbows have a bright and practical uniform – find out more by visiting our online shop.
