Rainbow Craft Idea

Start off by cutting your cardboard piece into a a rainbow arch. I love this spring art and craft activities for toddlers recycles something we have laying around the house!

This part is optional, but super helpful if you have a young child and are creating a rainbow craft for preschoolers. Use crayons to mark the spaces along the rainbow (either simple start/stop lines in each color or color the entire section) so your kid knows where the red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple should begin and end. If not young kids tend to forget and keep going with whatever color they have. But then again, that is part of the charm and makes a unique rainbow craft.

Tape the end of red yarn to the back of the piece of cardboard to secure into place.

Spring crafts for kids

Wrap the yarn around and around to fill the entire section. Try not to let any of the cardboard show and keep the yarn as tight and close together as you can. When you finish a section, simply cut it off the yarn ball and use tape to secure it to the back of the project. Then start with the next color, again affixing the end of yarn to the back with tape and wrap until you completed the next section.

Continue until you’ve wrapped the entire arch with colorful yarn. and tape or tuck in the end.¬† Now you have a beautiful rainbow, but we aren’t done yet!

Rainbow Craft Idea

Spring crafts for kids

To make your pretty spring rainow look like it is coming out of the clouds, we are going to use liquid school glue to attach 3 cotton balls to the end of each side of the rainbow.
