Potato Masher Rainbow Craft for Toddlers

The weather seems dominated by grey, grey dull days at the moment and frankly I’ve had enough! Rainbow crafts for kids are normally super popular around spring and St Patrick’s Day but frankly I can’t wait that long – we need more rainbow crafts now! We love crafts for toddlers and this simple activity was really easy to set up and make a a nice change for my toddler to using a paintbrush, I think it makes a pretty cool paint effect too and it’s easy to set up even if you don’t have all the colours you need!

How we made our rainbow craft for kids

We didn’t have all the colours of the rainbow for this craft but in this case I really don’t think it matters, actually it’s quite a positive thing as as long as you have the three primary colours you can then use this as a way to teach your kids about how colours are made. We had both red and yellow paints and after a bit of painting we quickly had orange paint mixed up too!

I cut out the rainbow shapes in advance as my daughter, 2, wouldn’t have been able to do this but it’s something older kids might want to do themselves. We’ve been looking at colours a lot this week so it was also a great excuse to work on colour recognising and of course to have a bit of messy, painting fun!
