We combined two items you probably already have on hand - paper plates and cardboard - to create this fun rainbow craft! Perfect for an afternoon project or a rainy day. Everyday is a good day for a rainbow!

Start with:

  • Paper Plate
  • Cardboard, multiple textures
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissor
  • Glue
  • Water Color Paint or Crayons

Create it!

Step 1: Fold a paper plate in half and cut at the fold to create two half circles.

Step 2: Paint or color with crayons, a rainbow in the center of the paper plate.

Step 3: Paint cardboard multiple shades of blue. Allow to dry and once dry, cut into geometrical shapes.

Step 4: Glue the blue cardboard to the outside of the rainbow on the remaining portion of the paper plate for a collage sky.

Punch a hole in the top and add a string to hang on the wall for some bright and lovely artwork. We really enjoy the puzzle aspect of the collage, fitting each piece together with the others - such a fun project!
