Kids Craft Idea: Paper Rainbow for St. Patrick's Day

Looking for a fun and easy craft to do with the kids for St. Patrick's Day? Grab your paper scraps, Glue Dots® and a few other supplies for a simple project that can be completed in less than an hour.


  • 6 11" paper strips (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)
  • 20 2" white circles
  • Glue Dots®: Pop Up & Craft
  • thin cardboard
  • 16" gold string
  • small hole punch

1. Cut cardboard into a 7x4" oval. Punch two small holes at the top, 3" apart. Insert the gold string and tie a knot.

2. Adhere circles to the oval using Craft Glue Dots® for the bottom layer and Pop Up Glue Dots® for the top layers.

3. Attach the paper strips to the back of the oval using Craft Glue Dots®.

Here's a closer look at the cloud:

And this is what the back looks like:

Now all we need is a pot of gold! Time to go hunting for leprechauns!
