Spring and Saint Patrick’s Day are both coming up fast. In honor of both of those things, our most recently learning art activity is a paper rainbow made of circles! This activity not only is a great way to work on colors, but it is also is an excellent way to work on fine motor skills.
- Construction Paper (Light blue, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, and white)
The prep work on this one takes a bit longer than most of what we do on this blog, but it is still pretty easy. Start by cutting out small circles from all but the white and light blue paper. The light blue paper will be the background. The white paper will need to be cut into four bigger circles.
Next, draw lines for your little one to place the colors. The lines we drew were just a bit too close together. If we were doing it again, we’d leave a little more space.
After you draw the lines, put glue on one line at a time and hand your little one the colors. Name each color for your little one as they work. This process will take a little bit of time, but it is wonderful fine motor skills and our little one had fun with it.
After all the colors are glued on, let your little one glue the white circles on the bottom of the rainbow.
