Rainbow & Clouds

For this activity you will need:

A paper plate

Cotton wool buds

Crepe paper, (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet)

Glue stick

Small length of ribbon


Before you begin to make this with your toddler, please cut the paper plate in half and cut the crepe paper into strips.

Now you can let your toddler do the following:

1. Turn the plate over and help your little one to glue a strip across the straight edge.

2. One by one, stick the strips of crepe paper down. They must be in this order to make a rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. As you can see I didnt have Indigo, so I had to use pink!

3. Turn the plate over.

4. Ask your toddler to use the glue stick to put glue all over the paper plate.

5. Stick the cotton wool buds over the plate to cover it completely.

6. Fold the ribbon in half and secure on the back with glue.

7. Hang your rainbow and clouds creation in pride of place!
