Easy Kids Rainbow Project: So Much Fun For Your Little Ones!
In case you’re not already familiar with the ‘rainbow movement’ happening at the moment, here’s the concept; people from around the globe are crafting rainbow themed displays and putting them up in their windows for anyone walking passed (particularly children) to spot and admire.
Here we have another inspirational project from Carla Bagshaw which shows you exactly how to create a super-easy tissue paper rainbow with your children… perfect to keep the little ones entertained with!
Time it takes to make: 1 hour
Skill level: Children aged 4+
Tissue Paper Rainbow Step by Step Tutorial:
You will need:
- 2 sheets of white card
- Tissue paper in rainbow colours
- Pencil and compass
- Scissors (adult supervision required!)
- Blue felt tip pen
On a piece of white cardstock, use a pair of compasses to make a large semi-circle, then reduce the compass size by 1.5cm and create another semi-circle inside the first. Continue to do this until you have 8 lines. Cut out the middle semi-circle.
Tear up some strips of tissue paper, then tear off small pieces and roll them into small balls.
On another piece of white card, draw 2 cloud shapes in blue felt tip and cut them out. Glue one to each end of the rainbow you have drawn.
Now for the fun bit! Take a ball of red tissue paper and dip the bottom of it into the PVA glue, then stick it to the top semi-circle of your rainbow. Keep doing it until the whole semi-circle is filled.
Now, fill the next semi-circle with orange, then yellow, green, blue, purple and pink until your rainbow is full up!
Then you can either stick your easy (but gorgeous!) kids rainbow to a wall to add instant cheer to your room, or punch some holes at the top and hang it in your window for other children to look at as they walk past your house.
