Hundreds of young children and parents are getting creative and filling their homes with colour with a wave of rainbow paintings making a trail around the city.
The rainbow art has become an increasingly popular activity in the last few days since the schools broke up to help spread a message of hope during these uncertain times.
Hundreds of school encouraged pupils in their final days to put up paintings after a trend started online.
Now there is a dedicated Rainbow Smile trail page that has been set up for Preston, Visit the page here :https://www.facebook.com/groups/800738213783423/?multi_permalinks=802989280224983¬if_id=1585047391270368¬if_t=group_activity&ref=notif
The page, set up by mum-of-two Jacqueline Winslow, has already amassed nearly 500 members with several inventive rainbow prints for families to share and enjoy.
She said: "Mindful activities are so important and at times like this, even more so.
"Exercise, creativity and positive attitudes are more important now than ever. I haven’t started this but I’m keen to encourage anything that supports bringing the community together, encourages a positive mindset or just makes someone smile, it’s what we need right now."
Here are a few of the Preston rainbows shared so far.
