How should we create our rainbow?

You can create a rainbow with your child in many relatively simple ways. Here are ten great things that you can create your Springtime rainbow with:

1. Paint – It might seem simple, but sometimes simple is best. You can create a wonderful and bright-colored rainbow with your child using finger paints or paint brushes. The best part about painting is that you can get different colors to decorate various materials. You can paint rainbows on coloring pages, but you can also get puff paints and make rainbow shirts. You can even paint your rainbows on plates or mugs to share with everyone in your family.


2. Fruit Loops – Fruit Loops can be a fun way to create a rainbow with your child, and you can have a snack simultaneously! Fruit Loops Cereal is perfect because it is big enough for young children to grasp, and they have all the colors that you will need.

3. Paper Handprints This might be a craft for slightly older children, but it can be fun. Using paint or colorful ink, you can create handprints on paper. Use every color of the rainbow and make several handprints. Cut out the handprints and glue them together in the shape of a rainbow.

4. Window Clings – There are many premade window clings that you can buy in the store for your child to color. These are pre-printed rainbows that are colored with special markers. You can then hang these clings on any window in your house.

5. Markers, colored pencils, or crayons – You can use traditional methods and color your rainbows with colored pencils, crayons, or markers. Try printing one of our rainbow coloring pages.

6. Construction Paper – A typical construction paper pack contains all the colors you need to cut out and make a nice rainbow. The best part about construction paper is that you can cut it and make the rainbow any way you want. You can cut it into arches, strips, or even squares. 

7. Duct Tape – Duct Tape comes in every color of the rainbow. The best part about Duct Tape is that you can cover almost anything with it. Try covering a notebook or special box.

8. Cotton Balls – You can use cotton balls to make your rainbow and the clouds beneath it. Dip the cotton balls in your chosen paint color, let them dry, and glue them to a piece of paper. Use cotton balls as clouds for the ends of your rainbow.

9. Old Clothing – Use old clothes to cut out pieces of fabric and sew or glue them together to make a rainbow. You can sew the pieces together to create a rainbow flag. 

10. Clay – Make a standing rainbow; you only need some playdough or clay. Form the clay or playdough into the rainbow of your choice. Allow it to dry, and you have a perfect little rainbow knick-knack.
