a small mirror(pocket mirror)

Science behind rainbows
Rainbows are made through the reflection and bending of sunlight, which happens through water droplets. This is why you see a rainbow when it rains! In the experiment above the sunlight traveled through the water and hit the mirror which bent and reflected the sunlight, this is why we saw a rainbow on the wall!
