Rainbow Craft for Kids

Here is a simple and fun rainbow craft the kids are sure to love. I remember making this craft when I was a kid, and it was really special to get to recreate it with my own children.

  • Fruit Loops or a similar cereal
  • Paper
  • Glue
  • Markers or crayons
  • Cotton balls
  • Begin by having kids draw the outline of a rainbow on their paper.  If your children are younger you can draw the rainbow outline for them like I did

  • Have kids cover the rainbow lines in glue, and then the real fun can begin!  I gave Rosie and Jewel a large bowl of Fruit Loops, and they had lots of fun sorting the colors and placing them onto the rainbow lines

This craft is great for reviewing colors & color sorting, and you can sneak in a bit of early math concepts, too!

Once their rainbows were complete Rosie and Jewel glued a cloud to the end using cotton balls

This simple craft kept the girls busy for a while, and they were really proud of their works of art.  Once they were dry we hung them on the wall to add a bit of color and sunshine to our indoor play space.
