Easy Rainbow Craft for Kids

Happy Rainbow month everyone! As you probably already know, I love a good theme and holiday. Not only is it fun celebrating holidays for the kids, it also gives me direction and inspiration when I’m looking for an activity to do with them.

We aren’t actually huge St. Patrick’s Day people. We will usually do green donuts, Guinness, and maybe some corned beef (if I’m feeling motivated and salty) on the 17th. But one thing we do love is rainbows! We are even planning a rainbow ballerina birthday party for Ella’s upcoming 4th birthday. Stay tuned for more on that!

Today I’m going to share a super easy and inexpensive rainbow craft that my daughter absolutely loved. I’ve seen this craft all over Pinterest and always wanted to try it. It far exceeded my expectations and I hope you will give it a try!


How To

Simply hot glue the crayons onto the canvas in any order you choose. I tried to stick to a rainbow order.

After that, COVER YOUR WORKSPACE. I’m not afraid of a messy craft, but this was more messy than I expected. I put a towel under our workspace, which happened to be the carpet in my room. This was a mistake! It wasn’t hard to clean the splatter off our legs, clothes, and the carpet… but I would just go ahead and skip all of that and do this craft on a hard surface with the best cover out there – a Gathre mat.

Then the best part – blow drying! Ella thought it was super cool that I was letting her use my blow dryer and she thought it was even cooler when the crayons started to melt and form a beautiful pattern. It only took a few seconds for the crayons to melt. She was totally amazed and so was I. She was also really proud of our creation. So much fun!

Let me know in the comments if you have any questions or if you try it out!
