Craft Time – Rainbows Galore - #2

august 2009 039
Because the Gluey-Jello rainbow turned out like it did, we did another rainbow craft.
I gave M a piece of white cardstock and this rainbow painter we found at a discount store ages ago and have never used:

He didn’t really paint in a rainbow shape, but I didn’t necessarily intend for him to. I just wanted the whole paper covered with rainbow colors.

I also had him put his hands together like this (to make a dove) and drew around them on a light beige piece of cardstock:

Then we mixed white glue and very fine silver glitter together on a saucer:

He painted the birdie:

I wish you could see how sparkly it turned out. I have had great results mixing glitter with paint (or even just plain white glue) to achieve a sparkly effect. The key, though, is to use the finest glitter you can find. It’s way less messy than letting them sprinkle the glitter on.
Once the rainbow paper was dry, I drew a rainbow shape on the back and cut it out:

Here’s a close up of the sparkly dove:

Have a beautiful, sparkly day! :)


  1. I love this!! And, I've really been itching to do more Bible-based activities and I think you've provided me with a great start (so thank you!!). Love it!

  2. How very pretty! I should be on the lookout for fine glue to do projects like this. You are so very creative!
