Rainbow Crafts for Kids

Today I’m sharing some fabulous rainbow crafts for preschoolers, and kicking off a new series!

My daughter LOVES to craft and is happy to make things with anything and everything. But there are only so many bits of paper you can stick on the fridge right?

And that’s why I started to steer her towards more “useful” crafts. Projects that we can either give as gifts or use as home decor, or things she can actually play with once she’s made them.

So I’m scouring the interweb for fun projects that kids can make that you will be more than happy to keep! And like I say, we’re kicking things off with all things rainbow!

1 | Rainbow Perler Bead Keychain

Rainbow Perler Bead KeychainThis rainbow perler bead pattern was the very first one my daughter used when I bought her some beads. It turned out great and we actually skipped the keyring part and stuck it to the front of a thank you card she was making!

5 | Rainbow Pony Bead Suncatcher

Rainbow Pony Bead SuncatcherWe made some beaded suncatcher just like this last summer! They’re brilliant for practising those all important fine motor skills, and you can throw in a little pattern work too. And at the end you have something beautiful to hang in your window. Or do what we did and hang them in your fairy wishing tree in the garden!

DIY Rainbow Maracas Using Plastic SpoonsOh how fabulous are these! I’ve put things into plastic eggs to make shakers before but never thought to turn them into maracas! This is a super fun craft that will then keep your kids busy being musicians!
