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!
St. Patrick’s Day Handprint Rainbows
Because this craft is fairly obvious, I am going to mainly showcase it in pictures.
- 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!”
Here we go.
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!
