Arts & Crafts: Colors > All Colors


Running Rainbows added 8-25-00 Original Author Unknown

Need: Paper towel tubes (one for each child), tape, crepe-paper or tissue-paper streamers

Directions: Help the children tape streamers to one end of the paper towel tubes (can
always paint the tubes before taping the streamers.) Let the children run in the wind holding the tubes high. Watch the streamers flutter and move.

Variation:


Use Plastic bracelets or small embroidery hoops to make streamer bracelets. Tie 16" lengths of colored ribbons to the hoop or bracelet.

 Blurry Rainbows added 2-10-02 Original Author Unknown

Need:
White paper (heavier, not thin like newsprint, like a nice white drawing  paper), dish of water, fat paintbrush or small sponge, any paints

Directions: Brush water on the white paper. Brush (or sponge) it smooth on the table with no puddles. The paper should be damp but not dripping. Paint on the wet paper. Paint a rainbow, if desired, or any rainbow colors in any design. The colors will blur and blend together. Allow to dry.

Mixing Paint (the non-messy way) added 3-26-02  
Submitted by: Mandi McIntyre

Need: White paper, paint, Saran wrap

Directions: When teaching what colors mixed together make what, this is a great, non-messy way to do it.  Take a paper plate, and put the primary colors on it. They are red, blue, and yellow.  Put a piece of saran wrap over the paper plate, big enough to cover the whole thing.  Let the child mix the paint with the fingers with using pressing on the saran wrap. When he/she is finished, remove the saran wrap and let dry.  The child will be impressed with their masterpiece!


Rainbow Necklace added 2-10-03 Original Author Unknown

Need: fruit loops, yarn

Directions: Give the children fruit loops to string onto yarn to make an edible rainbow necklace.


Rainbow Noodles added 2-16-03 Original Author Unknown

Need: macaroni noodles, paper, glue or string

Directions:
Dye small macaroni the colors of a rainbow. Have children make a rainbow gluing those onto paper. Or Pattern them on string to make rainbow necklaces.

Glue Hues added 5-13-03 Original Author Unknown

Need: glue, food coloring, cups, Popsicle sticks, paper

Directions:
Using Elmer's Glue, fill several cups half way with glue.  Make sure there is enough for every child to share.  Use food coloring to color the glue and stir with Popsicle sticks.  Children can use these Popsicle sticks to "drizzle" the glue onto a large piece of construction paper.  Encourage them to tilt the paper at different angles to let the glue flow or perhaps folding the paper in half making symmetrical designs.  Ask children what it is they created, you will get some interesting answers!!
