Rainbow Craft

I love making rainbows to display in March!  This March creation station activity makes a beautiful display around St. Patrick’s Day, but is also easy enough for kindergartners to do on their own!

Rainbow Craft Materials & Set Up

At this creation station, I put the rainbow template and pot of gold copy, and I precut 1 inch strips of rainbow colored paper.  And I make sure glue sticks and crayons are at the station too!

Rainbow Craft Directions

First, kids take a strip and wad it up into a tight ball.  When you model this, show them how to wad it tightly using their pinching fingers.

Then, they un-wad the ball so that they have a wrinkly strip of paper.  They may need to use two strips to cover the space for some colors.

Then, they simply use a glue stick or glue bottle to glue to wrinkled strip down.  It will not all sit nicely on the paper and this is on purpose.  It gives the rainbow a fun, 3-dimensional look!

Finally, they color the pot of gold, cut it out, and glue it to the base of the rainbow!
