After the rain, come rainbows. It’s a marvelous site to see, as well as metaphor if your life may be in a bit of a downpour lately. But, in a more uplifting turn, rainbows are a fun part of St. Patrick’s Day. Especially when there’s a pot o’ gold at the end of said rainbow, like this Craft Stick & Paper Plate Rainbow Craft!
This Craft Stick & Paper Plate Rainbow Craft is perfect for little kids because it’s so easy, but the end result couldn’t be better. Simply take a paper plate and cut it in half, in a wavy pattern.
I have some of these colored craft sticks that included a sticky end on one side, but if you don’t just paint regular craft sticks in the colors of the rainbow and glue them in place. We had to paint our green and purple, because our pack didn’t come with those colors. Then cut out the pot o’ gold and paint it yellow!
- 6 large craft sticks
- paint in the colors of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)
- white paper plate
First, paint your craft sticks if needed. Let dry.
Cut your paper in half in a wavy pattern. The top part you will leave as is as the clouds. Cut the inside portion out of the bottom half. Paint it yellow for the pot o’ gold.
Glue craft sticks to the back of the top and bottom in a bit of a diagonal.
This Craft Stick & Paper Plate Rainbow makes such a cute decoration! What would you do if you came upon a pot o’ gold?
