Simple Rainbow Craft for Kids : How to make a 3d rainbow with foil

{ all St.Patrick’s Day Crafts for kids here}

First tear off 7 sheets of your foil in increasing size { they will be the 7 colored bands of the rainbow}

Then start rolling the foil. It is easier to simply pinch the the sheet of foil and kind of scrunching it along the way

To turn this kids craft into a 3 rainbow press the ends of the foil into corresponding play dough color.

With proper leverage the kids can easily paint the colors of the rainbow now, while singing the Cat in the Hat Rainbow Song REALLY loud!

My kid was very particular to get every single part of the foil filled with color. So you may have to help them with holding the rainbow while they paint.

let the paint dry

The paint doesn’t take that long to dry.
