This DIY rainbow fan is a great project to keep the kids creative while keeping cool now that spring is here.

Sometimes it's just the simplest ideas that are the most compelling, and this rainbow fan is no exception. Anyone can do it. The project is as simple as simply removing the cover on a standard room fan, and painting each blade a different color. For those looking for a bigger challenge or are more visually creative, you could paint patterns and combine colors within each blade. Once the rainbow fan is turned on, it not only cools the room, but creates a fascinating pinwheel effect. Just make sure the paint is dry before you turn the rainbow fan on, lest you wish to clean paint drops off your face and walls.
