Our family just loves rainbows year round. But I like when rainbows get a little extra stage time around easter and in spring too. It is perfect for spring rain storms and how easter includes remembering God’s promises. This craft is a good one for a range of children’s ages, including very young. I found it fun and soothing even as an adult – concentric circles, orderly proceeding colors. The satisfaction of the final cut at the end to make the two rainbows!

We did the standard rainbow shades but other versions – like maybe a pastels one – would be so pretty!

Also it’s a great introductory craft for young children getting to start practicing with scissors.


  1. Colorful paper
  2. Scissors
  3. Glue
  4. Pencil
  5. Seven bowls of different sizes


  1. Trace around largest bowl on first color paper (perhaps red). Cut out with scissors.
  2. Repeat with remaining colors. We did seven for red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
  3. Glue papers together, centered on each other.
  4. Cut circles in half to produce two rainbows!

These are decorating our house for spring, but I just love a good little rainbow. So I may keep one tucked in a children’s bedroom or the playroom year round.
