Rainbow Collage – a colourful craft for toddlers

As the dull and dreary winter months come to an end, I start to crave colour, and so I shift our focus to colourful toddler crafts here in my home daycare.  As you can imagine, rainbow projects are perfect for this!  Big bands of vibrant colours!  There’s nothing like a rainbow to brighten up your day!   You’ll find many rainbow crafts , using a variety of materials, among the pages of my blog. Today each hooligan made a rainbow collage out of crafting scraps and odds and ends.

This rainbow collage was the perfect craft for a dreary winter day.  It was a great lesson in colour recognition and fine motor control and the colours were a real pick-me-up on a grey morning!  supplies for rainbow collage

What you’ll need for your rainbow collage:

I set up bowls filled with bright paper cuttings and various colourful craft supplies (pompoms, stickers, foam pieces, bits of fabric etc).  Use whatever bits and pieces you have at home.  You could also use yarn, buttons, jewels, etc.  You get the idea.

I drew some rainbows on white cardboard, and used markers and some crayons to colour code the sections so the Hooligans would know where to glue their collage pieces.gluing the rainbow collage

The hooligans used all the craft and paper bits to fill in their rainbows, and then painted the sky and glued on some cotton ball clouds.rainbow collage
