I think rainbows have always been a favorite for me. We have also done so many activities with them. We enjoy having the crafts around to look at the start of spring.
I love when you have mix things together you have for something fun. Years ago I was going to scrapbook and it never happened. Now I have all this paper that we are having loads of fun using for crafts.
Today’s craft is super simple torn scrapbook paper rainbow.
We have loads of rainbow books we have loved over the years. One of our favorites has been What Makes a Rainbow? Magic Ribbon Book. We loved turning the pages and adding the new ribbons. We have also liked: Light Makes a Rainbow (Science Readers: Content and Literacy) and A Rainbow of My Own.
I love all the colors you see in the rainbow. There are so many fun ways to learn with rainbows.
What you need for this craft
How we made this craft
First, we would pick out our colors. I have several sets of old scrapbooking paper that we loved to use for crafts. They pick out the colors of the rainbow they want to use.
Next, we tear up enough to use for one color on the rainbow. This is a great way to work on fine motor skills. I know that my girls hate writing and complain about fingers but when we do fun crafts like this they don’t think about working the same skills as writing.
Then, we put glue on the glitter cardstock. Because of the glitter you really want to make sure you put down enough glue to let the paper stick.
Finally, we place down our torn pieces of paper on the area with the glue. It is simple and easy to do. Plus placing the paper is great fine motor work.
You repeat this with each of the colors. It is fun to see the craft come together. Plus each rainbow is unique and made their own way.
