kindness rainbow

This project is intended for children ages 6+. Kindness makes the world go around!  This cute Kindness Rainbow can be hung up and displayed as a reminder to appreciate kindness.
Step 1

First, click here to download and print the template; then cut out the pattern.

Step 2

Trace and cut out the curved rainbow patterns and use a glue stick to attach in order from largest to smallest (as marked on the template): red (1), orange (2), yellow (3), green (4), blue (5) and purple (6).

Step 3

Trace and cut out two clouds from white construction paper.

Step 4

Use a glue stick to attach the clouds to the ends of the rainbow.

Step 5

Trace and cut out eight raindrops from the same colors you used for the rainbow.

Step 6

Using a marker, write words of kindness (or positive characteristics) onto the raindrops.
TIP: Words such as joy, peace, love, good, kind and/or honest are just a few examples.

Step 7

Cut six strands of yarn to hang from the rainbow in varying lengths.
TIP: These lengths can be as long, or short, as you desire.

Step 8

Use clear tape to attach the droplets to the strands of yarn. Make sure they are all facing forward and tape yarn to the back of the droplet.

Step 9

Attach the strands of yarn to the back of the rainbow, using tape, and then turn the rainbow back to the front side.

Step 10
To complete the rainbow, outline the clouds with glue and shake glitter on top. Shake excess glitter onto a piece of scrap paper and put back in the glitter jar. Let dry.
