Rainbow's End

Activity for an individual child

Age group: 30-40 months

Duration of activity: 15 minutes

Materials:

  • Toilet paper tube
  • Scissors
  • Black felt-tip marker
  • Paper plate
  • Crayons or colored markers
  • White craft glue
  • Gold sequins

This cute craft makes a pretty centerpiece for a holiday party. Add some gold-foil chocolate coins for extra excitement.

  1. Cut the toilet paper tube in half crosswise. Discard one half.
  2. Have your child color the half tube black to make the pot.
  3. Cut the paper plate in half. Discard one half.
  4. Cut off the rim of the plate to create an arch shape. You may need to trim the width a bit so that one end will fit into the "pot."
  5. Encourage your child to color the arch with rainbow colors. Keep in mind that your child's creative rainbow may not resemble the real thing; that is okay.
  6. Let your child glue some gold sequins to the rim of the little black pot.
  7. Balance the rainbow arch by inserting one end of it into the pot opening.
