Enjoy these 20 easy Rainbow Crafts for Kids — perfect for Spring & St. Patrick’s Day!
Nothing says “Spring” like the colors of the rainbow!
And while it’s fun to pull out the crayons to make a rainbow, we often prefer something with a tactile or sensory component when we’re crafting or creating art.
Like our Fall Texture Art projects for kids , today’s activities all involve something more than just coloring on paper.
So let’s get creative with rainbow colors that ‘pop’!
20 Rainbow Craft Ideas for Kids
Many of these rainbow crafts & activities can easily be completed using items from around the house but they offer more ‘hands-on’ opportunity for kids to create while learning the colors of the rainbow. We’ve included affiliate items for things that we’ve used & loved too.
This is the perfect opportunity to practice those colors, fine motor skills, get creative and even learn a little science with some of the activities!
