I’m sitting here with winter still very much on my doorstep. As I look outside I can still see traces of snow and the wind is blowing. I decided it’s time for some spring and summer crafts for kids. It’s time brighten things up around here. So today I’m sharing with you 4 different rainbow crafts for kids to make. I mean, who doesn’t love a bright rainbow? Rainbow crafts are so cheerful and they work for St. Patrick’s Day, for spring and Easter, and they are even fun to do in the summer. These crafts come with a free printable rainbow template to make the colorful crafting with kids that much easier. You’ll find the free printable rainbow at the bottom of this post. And I had to break these rainbow craft ideas up into two posts because they were just getting too long, so be sure to click over to the next page to see my other easy rainbow crafts for kids.

I love a good rainbow, don’t you? Be sure to get my FREE PRINTABLE RAINBOW TEMPLATE for these crafts at the bottom of this post!
Tissue Paper Rainbow Craft
We used to make these tissue paper crafts (or crepe paper crafts) in elementary school. Anyone else remember these?
Materials you will need:
6-7 sheets of gift tissue paper, in colors of the rainbow (like these here)
Free printable rainbow template (at bottom of this post)
pencil with a good eraser
Cut your gift tissue paper into strips and then into 1-2 inch squares. You can do this quickly by cutting them all at once. The squares do not need to be perfect. A rough square shape works just fine. Be sure to use different colors of tissue paper, obviously the colors of the rainbow will be the best.
Pinch and twist single square of tissue paper around a pencil eraser. Repeat with the other pieces of colored tissue paper.
Apply a dot of glue to the flat end of the twisted pieces of tissue paper and stick them to the rainbow printable.
Pom Pom Rainbow Craft
Pom pom crafts are so quick and easy. I also love how bright and colorful they are. They are easy for little kids to do too.
Materials you will need:
Colored craft pom poms
Free printable rainbow template (at the bottom of this post)
Apply a dot of glue to each of the pom poms. Place them on the printable template in rainbow order. Apply a dot of glue to each of the cotton balls and place them on the rainbow template as clouds. You can also just draw a line with the glue on the paper and just let the kids place the pom poms on the glue line.
Let it dry thoroughly. Such a beautiful rainbow craft for kids to take home!
