Rainbows and Gold OH MY!!!

Well, we were asked to do something with paint and tissue paper....and this isn't quite tissue paper but its sorta close... :)
All you need for this is black construction paper, white tag board,an old yellow shopping bag, paints (colors of the rainbow) a pencil and scissors. [You also need glue but I forgot that in the picture]

I drew a rough sketch of a rainbow so Bug knew what lines to paint in....leaving a space for the pot of gold

Using an old yellow shopping bag cut small pieces out where there is no writing. We got our yellow shopping bag from Dollar General :)

Using your pencil draw a pot for the gold on your black construction paper and cut it out


Have your little one put glue on the back of the pot and glue it at the end of the rainbow

I found using a q-tip and putting dots of paint in each line made it very easy for Bug to see where she needed to paint



I used a seperate q-tip for each color. After putting the dots in the lines I handed the q-tip to Bug and let her use that to spread the paint out

Final project of rainbow




Using the glue have your little one glue the small pieces of the plastic bag to the top of the pot

Final Product :)




Put the tag board someplace to dry, throw your q-tips away along with the rest of your shopping bag and construction paper scraps. You may need to wash your child's hands but we stayed clean!!!
