Spring Projects for Children: 28 Rainbow Crafts for Kids

By: Jaclyn Holtzman, Editor,

Drip Painted Rainbow PotsApril showers bring May flowers, and they also bring springtime rainbows. April showers don't seem half bad anymore, do they? One of the most exciting feelings when you're little is to look up after rainfall and see a beautiful, arching rainbow spreading across the post-storm sky. Replicate those beautiful colors and bright feeling by engaging in rainbow crafts for kids all spring long.

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet are just colors on their own, but when the seven magical colors meet, they make quite a scene. Not only are rainbows beautiful, but legend has it that at the end of each rainbow there is a pot of gold. Whether that is true or not, it's worth a try with these rainbow crafts for kids! Craft as many rainbows as you can and see if at either end there happens to be a treat worth talking about.

Looking a little bit more closely at this fabulous list of Spring Projects for Children: 28 Rainbow Crafts for Kids, it appears that there might just be bright, shiny lights at the end of these rainbow tunnels. You and your little ones will have to get crafting to find out which of these rainbow crafts for kids qualify, but I can assure you that some do.

Whether you're two or two hundred you can look up and see a rainbow, so no matter your age, your children should be able to make rainbow crafts for kids. To help you out, we have separated our colorful crafts by age group, so that even the littlest balls of sunshine can craft the beauty of a rainbow. Just because you're twelve, though, does not mean that you wouldn't love to make Drip Painted Raibow Pots, so be sure to click through all the rainbow crafts for kids to find your child's favorites.

Throughout this list of spring projects for children, you'll see all of the different forms that color takes, and you might be amazed if you stop to think about it. These seven beautiful colors can be replicated with paint, paper, water, crayon, food, felt, pipe cleaners, and more. Rainbows can be found high and low, inside and outside, so be sure to keep your eyes wide open so that you don't miss your chance to make rainbow crafts for kids and other rainbow-inspired kids' craft ideas.
