Tissue Paper Rainbow Suncatcher Craft for Kids

Rainbows are a great, bright and colorful craft to make. Try this fun tissue paper rainbow suncatcher. You can put it in a sunny window when you are finished.

This fun rainbow craft just needs a few supplies, like contact paper and cotton balls. I made a free rainbow printable too.

This rainbow craft project would be great for toddler and preschoolers to young elementary kids.

Pair this fun and easy rainbow craft with a book for creating and reading fun. A Rainbow of My Own.

I have gathered some rainbow crafts and we made these other rainbow crafts: Rainbow Bracelet Craft, Recycle Rainbow Suncatcher Craft, and Recycle Rainbow Suncatcher Craft.

Supplies

First, after printing out the free rainbow, cut out a piece of contact paper that is the same size and the printable rainbow (8.5 x 11 in)

Next, take the backing off the contact paper and place it sticky side up on top of the print out of the rainbow. Tape it down with either 2 pieces of tape or contact paper.

Next, cut the 1 in tissue paper squares into thirds (approx .33 in pieces). Place the pieces in color order, red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple on top of each line.

Then, put some cotton ball on the cloud part of the outline and press firmly. To finish I cute the extra contact paper off and place it on top of the rainbow. I put the clouds on before I did the rainbow, either way works.

You could do that or skip putting the cotton balls on and just put another piece of contact paper on top and then glue the cotton balls on top.
