Step 1: Download and Print the Free Rainbow Craft Template

The Rainbow Template has everything you need to make this Spring Craft for Kids.

Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Rainbow Craft Shapes

Print the Free Rainbow Craft Template and staple the pieces to multiple sheets of paper before cutting.

Once you have the print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out the shapes you need.

Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!

Step 3: How to Assemble this Rainbow Craft for Toddlers

  1. First, glue the red arch onto your blue construction paper.
  2. Next, glue each colored arch below the red arch: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple.
  3. Optional: Pull apart cotton balls and glue them onto your rainbow to make a soft and fluffy cloud.
  4. Don’t forget to write your name on the back.
