Ask @alburrito345:

How would you explain color to a blind man?

A rainbow is a meteorological phenomenon made up of six colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. To help a vision-impaired person understand a rainbow, I would emphasize the senses that he or she is capable of experiencing. Blind people may not be able to see differences in colors, but they can understand concepts such as hot and cold and hard and soft; colors have similar characteristics. If I had a musical instrument available (like a piano), I would play six notes with each note representing a color of the rainbow. The differences between the musical notes might help your friend imagine intensity in the colors of a rainbow.
