Easy Colors Of The Rainbow Art

I dyed rainbow colored rice for Ethan's shamrock to hang on his locker at school, and made some for our very cool, much loved rainbow sensory bin. We had a bunch of the rainbow rice still left over, so I had the kids use it to make a rainbow art project idea.

What is needed for this project?
Card stock
Glue (liquid glue works best)
Colored Rice

Step 1 ~ Trace the outline of a rainbow on your card stock using a pencil so you can erase any mistakes. I had the kids label each of their rainbow sections with the starting letter and learn the colors of the rainbow Roy G. BIV.

Step 2 ~ Add glue to 1 section at a time, sprinkle your rice on the glue using the correct color of rice. Continue this step with each sections of your rainbow until you have your rainbow filled in.


Here are the finished rainbows the boys made. They are now hanging around the house for a colorful, easy, and fun St. Patrick's Day decoration!
