Step 2: Cut up Construction Paper for the Rainbow Craft

You may already have a stash of scrap construction paper. For the mosaic rainbow craft, you’ll need all of the colors of the rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple.

Construction Paper
Stack construction paper in every color of the rainbow.

Children can cut the paper into small shapes or let them rip it as they make the craft.

If you plan to cut paper ahead of time for this craft, just cut strips of paper about a half-inch wide. Stack and line up your strips of paper to cut multiple sheets at a time.
