St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Craft

Rainbows are perfect for any time of year, but especially during the month of March. Ruby and I had fun making this sweet little cardstock rainbow to brighten up our window. I love the bold colors and she loves the glitter.  We will show you how easy it was to make and share more rainbow treats and activities at the end of the post!

Directions:

Stagger the lengths of your strips by 1/2″ beginning with red. Ex: If your red strip is 8″ long, your orange will be 7.5″, yellow 7″, green 6.5″ …and so on.

Stack the strips in order of the rainbow colors and staple one side.

Ruby was ALL about the glitter! We only needed a few hearts, but ended up making extras because she just couldn’t stop and was having so much fun. Now she has a nice pile of gold hearts to use for…whatever.
