Our kids love small world play and this simple idea is a great starting point for a rainbow scene. We have many different rainbow templates that you can print and colour or paint and some that are already done for an immediate play idea! Just pop the rainbow on a paper plate and voila, and instant scene that kids can make at school and then take home to play with! We love this St. Patrick’s Day kids’ craft as it is both “Make & Play”! The kids made many of these as they thought it would make a nice plate to put treats like chocolate or tea to drop off at the school for the teachers! Materials Printables: Rainbow Paper Plate2 Cardstock Paper plate (we used inexpensive white ones to paint, but you could use green ones too) Scissors Glue Paint or crayons, pencil crayons, markers etc. We always find these items useful too: Directions Print the rainbow that you like. We used sturdy cardstock so the rainbow could stand. Paint or colour it or chose a pre-coloured rainbow if you would like. Paint your paper plate. We used an inexpensive white one, but you could also use a green paper plate from the party or dollar store. Allow it to dry and cut it out. Fold the tabs at the bottom of your rainbow ends. Glue the tabs and stand up your rainbow on your plate. This will now make a little world for your small toys to enjoy some time under your colourful rainbow! Add any other things that you might like to enhance your play!
