We do this every night, but I've never taken a picture before. 

I did the blue and one of each color to show her how, and Natalie did the rest! 

I just held all the paper together and cut it diagonally.  Saved the extras for another day. 

Natalie's rainbow. 

Paper before I cut out the R. 

I decided to make a rainbow R because that day we were talking a lot about colors. 

Natalie thought to make letter R cupcakes all on her own.  She was going to pretend with a toy ketchup bottle, but then I brought her the dry erase markers that came with these Melissa and Doug cupcakes.  I showed her an R, and she copied.  I think she did awesome.  They look a little like R's if you look carefully at the strokes. 

Some R pages from Natalie's notebook.
