3D Rainbow Art

We have had a new ongoing obsession with rainbow art in our house…

We are constantly singing the colors of the rainbow song over and over… and over.

We’ve made everything from Flowers to Spheres with rainbow construction paper.

When I saw this cute post from Teach Preschool I knew I needed to do something like it with V. She has an amazing tip for gluing with your little ones.

The only problem was V wanted to make a “real rainbow” she wanted that perfect arch.

Since creating a 3d paper rainbow can be challenging for a preschool craft,  we tweaked it a bit.  This 3D rainbow art project is designed to make it easier for her to accomplish the “perfect rainbow”.
