When we asked Finlay, aged 8, why he created his rainbow masterpiece he replied, ‘we wanted to help make other people happy when they see it in our window. It will brighten their day’.  Well said Finlay : )

It’s often in the darkest of times that little rays of sunshine appear, which is exactly what the rainbow trend is all about.

It’s though to have first started in Italy, soon followed by Spain and now the rest of the world – as we show we’re all in this together.

Painting is a great way to help keep the kids entertained and feeling a little brighter while they are at home.

Many schools up and down the country are encouraging the kids to paint the rainbows while at home, unable to see each other. It’s been dubbed ‘The Rainbow Trail’. A fun way to give kids the chance to spot the rainbows while out on their one walk a day.

I’ve heard they’re putting rainbows on windows in Italy and Spain and Brooklyn, a sign of hope and solidarity and resilience in spite of coronavirus lockdowns. And now Chicago too! Can you put one in yours, friends? Make sure it’s street-side! ???????? (Thank you, @thisismm) – #wereinthistogether #frommywindow #desdemiventana #todosaldrabien???? #todosaldrabien

Here we see a family painting straight onto the window.

The caption reads, ‘I’ve heard they’re putting rainbows on windows in Italy and Spain and Brooklyn, a sign of hope and solidarity and resilience in spite of coronavirus lockdowns. And now Chicago too! Can you put one in yours, friends? Make sure it’s street-side! ????????’.

One follower comments, ‘That’s right! Children in Italy started first with “tutto andra bene”, and now in Spain children continue with it but in spanish “todo saldrá bien”. Both are to encourage other people and also children. It’s not easy to stay at home but We all obey and with creative ideas as this we continue to believe that EVERYTHING IS GONNA BE OK ❤

We painted our window with a rainbow so when kids walk passed they'll have something to look for as it's turned into a town event. A map has been created so you can go looking for them all ???? . . . #rainbow #window #wereallinthistogether #keepcalm #keepgoing #toddlelife #toddlerplay #mumlife #beautiful
