Indoor Rainbows

Rainbows are loved by everyone of every age. Teach your kiddos how to make one of their own. This is an easy project to pull out of a hat for either a rainy day or a solution for a bored kid.

What you'll need:
- 1 paper plate
- Paper streamers or wide ribbon in bright colors*
- crayons or colored markers
- Scissors
- White craft glue
- Piece of ribbon for hanging

*red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple

What to Do:
1. Have kiddos color the outer portion of a paper plate. and then cut a large circle out of the center of the paper plate. All that should be left is the newly colored rim of the plate.

2. Cut 1 streamer or ribbon of each color to about 18 inches long.

3. Glue each streamer to the bottom half of your paper circle.

4. Make a small hole at the top of the paper circle and thread a thin piece of ribbon through it. Then, you'll tie a loop in the ribbon and hang up the your rainbow.

Here are some helpful hints...

If you use a pencil to make your circle on the paper plate, press down firmly. This will make an indent and will make it easier to cut out the circle.

Another thing you can do with the streamers and ribbon is to cut them twice the length, and then drape them through the circle and glue right at the center. This gives you double the amount of streamers and enables you to display the rainbow from either side. Great for hanging up in the center of a room instead of a flat wall space.

Paper plates are great, but if you prefer, use a foam plate for a nice smooth outer edge - colored markers work better than crayons on this kind of surface.
