I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for warmer weather. If you knew me personally you would know this is very unusual. I usually like to freeze my Podgeables off. Yes, I’m one of those weird people that enjoys being cold.
This year’s a little bit different. I’m ready for warmth, and I’m ready for color! Maybe you are too?
When I think of warmer weather, the one thing that always comes to mind is rainbows. We get quite a lot of them in spring here in the Pacific Northwest of the US. Once I start seeing rainbows regularly, I know we’re on the right path.
Plus this is the only place I’ve seen double rainbows in my life. If you’ve ever been lucky enough to see one . . . they’re pretty cool! But I digress. That’s science and this is crafts, right?
If you like rainbows – especially rainbow crafts for kids – I have a great list for you of over 30 ideas! I’ll be honest though . . . while these are for children primary, they are great for adults too. I feel like rainbows are for everyone!
If you’re ready for the list, scroll down and let me know your favorite project in the comments. Or which idea(s) you’ve tried. Or how much you love spring – and rainbows. Basically I’d just love to hear from you!
