Kid Craft: Paper Rainbow

I designed this paper rainbow with the purpose of using it for a place card on St. Patrick's Day. I've found that my youngest is more enthusiastic about setting the table when she can make the place cards, fold the napkins in cute shapes and pick out a centerpiece (usually a toy). It makes the entire process fun and hopefully she learns where the utensils go in the process.

In case you just want to use these rainbows for a craft project, I made two templates. A smaller size for the place cards and a larger size for a craft or centerpiece. Decorate them anyway you want. For example, add some glitter the rainbow or glue cotton balls to the clouds to make them fluffy.

Small Rainbow Template

Large Rainbow Template

Click on image, right click, copy, save, print. The small rainbow template is designed to fit on a 8.5" x 11" portrait. The large rainbow is designed to fit on a 11" x 8.5" landscape.

Cut out on solid lines. Cut on dotted lines. Attach clouds (refer to picture). No glue is needed.
