This rainbow streamer craft uses recycled materials and colorful ribbon to make a rainbow hanging from a cloud. The perfect Spring craft for all ages.
For this week’s Virtual Book Club for Kids we are reading about rainbows! The book A Rainbow of My Own was not available at our library this week so we watched a reading of it on YouTube.
We made a rainbow streamer craft for kids this week, and I loved how independently my kids were able to complete this project! They love to sing the Colors of the Rainbow song while crafting to help them remember the order of the colors. Hang it in the window and let the light shine through!
Rainbow Streamer Craft for Kids
This rainbow streamer craft uses recycled paper or cardboard, some cotton pads and ribbon! How easy! They are inspired by this rainbow streamer craft that uses a paper plate.
What you need:
- recycled cardboard, card stock, or posterboard
- white glue
- Ribbon (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) or yarn
What to do:
Cut a cloud shape out of your paper or poster board. Cut ribbon or yarn at about 12 inch lengths.
Place the items on the table and let your kids begin crafting! I like to put strips of tape on the edge of the table for them to peel off and use. Using masking tape or painters tape helps little hands manipulate the tape without it bunching up as easy.
Kids can tape the strips of ribbon to the back of the cloud shape. With younger kids, they can tape the colors in whatever order the choose to make the project a little more independent. Older kids can try to follow the order of the colors in the rainbow.
Once all of the ribbons are taped on, flip the cloud over and place glue all over the top. Stick cotton balls or pads onto the glue to make a fluffy cloud!
The rainbow streamer craft is complete! How simple! Hang these in the window or on a wall to brighten up your room.
