IF YOU'VE been out for a walk, you might have noticed some colourful rainbow drawings in the windows of a number of houses.

The idea quickly spread on social media after a post suggested it might help brighten some people's day.

Now local children have joined in, and we've put together a gallery of the ones our readers have sent in.

As reported, youngsters were encouraged to put pen to paper while they stay at home to avoid the spread of coronavirus and displaying them in the window would give other families something to look out for while they stretch their legs.

Rainbows of any size, design, or artistic ability are encouraged to be displayed.

If you do go out for a walk to find rainbow pictures in windows near you, please remember the latest guidance is to stay two metres apart from anybody else going for a stroll.

Have your children put a rainbow picture in your window?

Send us some pictures and we will add them to the gallery!

At First Steps Nursery in the heart of Salisbury, we have created a rainbow and hearts to help spread the positivity around our area. We are remaining open for key workers children and are having lots of fun for the children (and the staff).
