DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Macaroni Rainbow Paper Craft

contributed by Leanne Guenther

Macaroni shapes are easy crafts for toddlers and preschoolers to make. Energetic crafters can get quite fancy organizing the colors and putting them on the rainbow, whereas super-quick crafters can just cheerfully scatter everything on in a haphazard way.

The rainbow shape doesn't have to be cut out, but it is a simple shape for beginner scissor users to cut. You can leave then paste it onto a piece of blue construction paper if you like. You could also use blue finger paints or blue water color paints to create a blue background for your rainbow.

I love using macaroni for this project because they're an arch shape, just like a rainbow!



I'm a little Rainbow (sung to: I'm a Little Teapot)

I'm a little rainbow, way up high.
After it rains, look up to the sky.
You will see my colors, oh so bright!
From end to end, what a lovely sight!
