St. Patrick’s Day Handprint Rainbows

Yesterday Charlotte stayed home from school in the morning because she thought she was gonna throw up. I love being a parent.

After a few hours she felt better, but then had a headache. Around 1 she started to feel better but it was a few hours before school ended so I just kept her home.

She decided to do some crafting (such a daughter of mine some days) and here is a great craft she made and wanted me to share with you all! This is an easy paper activity and needs little more than construction paper and staples. You can do this with any age child as long as you have someone to supervise the cutting if they are young.

Or try this St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Snack Cup as well!

Because this craft is fairly obvious, I am going to mainly showcase it in pictures.

step1

 

  • Just trace a left hand and a right hand and cut out. We cut out 3 for each side (6 total in each color) but if you want a bigger rainbow you may want more.
  • Once you have your hand prints, just staple together in a rainbow!

Charlotte worked on hers by herself (9 years old) and here is her craft:

I wanted her to show me her completed project. She is at an age where everything is “Oh, mom!”

TIP: If you are a teacher, this would be a great bulletin board idea. Just have the kids cut out their hands and staple into a rainbow. Use cotton balls as the clouds on either side!

  1. I guess that your daughter is absolutely happy to make this rainbow. She definitely enjoys the process! It is such a nice idea to spend time together and just to have fun! How did you invent this idea?

  2. What a cute idea! My son is home for spring break and it would be fun to try this with him. He’s almost 4 years old and at a stage where he loves crafts like this.

  3. That is SO cute- I love that she did it herself. And that “OH MOM” stage morphs into, ugh, MOM.— (can’t you just HEAR the inflection?)
    I love St. Patrick’s Day crafts.

  4. My 6 year old would love this activity (he’s still not at the ‘oh mom’ stage yet, so maybe I can even get some photos! Thanks for sharing your adorable daughter too!

  5. That is a cute project. My husband is redoing our pontoon boat. The flooring is blue and the seat are blue and white. He plans to paint the outside of the boat white and have friends come over a do hand prints all over the boat. I can not imagine what it will look like but summer is coming so we shall see soon. Maybe, a design similar to this would be cute.

  6. I had to laugh at your daughter’s reaction. It’s so teenage-esque. 🙂 I was doing crafts with my teenager and her friends the other night and they were taking all kinds of selfies but if I wanted to take a picture it was another story. Cute craft. I agree, it would be great for a classroom teacher.
