Rainbows are aged 5 – 7 years of age.

Rainbows is all about having fun! We play games and activities as part of our programme called the ‘Rainbow Jigsaw’. Everything a Rainbow does helps her to develop and to think for herself, in a safe girl-only environment. We look, learn, laugh and love at our meeting every week.

We promote girl-lead activities, including the ‘Roundabouts’ where the girls choose four activities from a chosen roundabout and gain a special badge when they have worked towards this.

Their Rainbow Jigsaw programme is a balanced programme of fun and learning is achieved by fitting together four key areas. Rainbows are invited to Look, Learn, Laugh and Love.

  • Rainbows Look – helps girls to realise that they are part of a wider world.
  • Rainbows Learn – takes in many activities both in the unit and outside.
  • Rainbows Laugh – a lot! Guiding is great fun at any age. Parties, games and songs are just a few of the things that Rainbows get up to in this area.
  • Rainbows Love – encourages girls to be kind and caring towards others whether at home, school or the Rainbow meeting.

Rainbows make this simple Promise

They share with members around the world…

I promise that I will do my best,
To think about my beliefs,
And to be kind and helpful.
