Not the best explanation, but here we go
"Initially, the universe was really hot. It was filled with gamma rays (electromagnetic radiation with very short wavelengths). As the universe expanded, the wavelengths of the gamma rays stretched. As the universe continued to
expand, the wavelengths of the radiation stretched further and further. (Eventually reaching
into other parts of the electromagnetic spectrum.)"
