We had a blast making these colorful rainbow necklaces in honor of St. Patty’s day a few weeks ago. The kids wore them (& snacked on them) all day and are extremely anxious to do this activity again.
A few weeks ago we made these extremely fun 3D rainbows. For my preschooler I put numbers on the colored strips and numbers on the base of our paper. Little Miss had to match the correct strip to the numbers and glue them.
My toddlers got to glue their color strips freely on their papers.
This activity was to give us a lesson in glue. We’ve been discussing “just a dot not a lot” and about how long it takes for glue to dry before its safe to move projects. With this activity we held our strips down and counted to 10 before moving on.
Earlier in the week we had great fun making giant rainbow collages. The instructions and materials needed are pretty self explanatory by looking at the pictures.
This is wonderful art work for St. Patty’s day, the Letter Rr, discussing rainbows in weather and how rainbows are symbols of God and His promises.
I have our rainbows displayed in front of the window and it looks gorgeous when the light shines through 🙂
