I love rainbows – they are so cheerful and bright, and kids love to make rainbow-themed crafts.
Often they are associated with St Patrick’s Day, but I think they’re great at any time of year!
Here’s my selection of the best easy Rainbow Crafts for kids:
Craft Sticks Rainbow from The Resourceful Mama
This cute rainbow with a fluffy cloud is super-easy to make from craft (or lollipop) sticks and cotton pads.
Cardboard Rainbow Collage from The Art Bar
This is great if you’ve got lots of little ones that want to make rainbows at the same time, perhaps a birthday party activity?
Just set out the different coloured torn up papers for glueing, and watch the rainbows appear!
Rainbow Tile Coasters from One Little Project
These coasters look fantastic, and they’re useful too!
So easy for your kids to create lovely rainbow designs that you can admire every time you have a coffee!
Edible Paint Rainbow Bread from Kids Craft Room
Not sure that this bread looks very tasty, but it is pretty and it is edible!
Amazing Optical Illusion Rainbow Rock from Rockpainting 101
Rockpainting 101 say that this amazing optical illusion is ideal for beginner rock painters – why not have a go and let me know how you get on ?
DIY Rainbow Ribbon Fairy Wands from Rhythms of Play
These no-sew homemade magic fairy wands look fantastic – ideal for wanna-be fairies.
I love the rainbow streamers that will waft around as spells are cast!
Rainbow Fish Craft from The Best Ideas For Kids
This lovely rainbow fish was designed to go with The Rainbow Fish picture book by Marcus Pfister.
You don’t need the book to enjoy creating these eye-catching fish with your kids.
Stained Glass Rainbow Craft by ABCs to ACTs
This stained glass rainbow looks lovely if you hang it in front of your window and watch the sunlight filter through.
