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:
Glue the dove onto the top and you’ve got a pretty little reminder of the story about Noah’s Ark.
Nope, I didn’t make him hold it front of his face, that’s just what he did.
Here’s a close up of the sparkly dove:
It turned out very pretty – the pictures don’t do it justice.
Have a beautiful, sparkly day! :)
