Print out our Rainbow Template. Cut out the template and trace it onto black light-weight cardboard or poster board.
Cut out the rainbow. Then cut out the middle of the template, leaving a thin rim of black paper around the outside. Make sure to leave a line of black paper separating the rainbow from the clouds. *This is pretty challenging scissor work and should be left to an adult unless the child is old enough to attempt this.
Peel the paper backing off of a piece of contact paper and stick your outline to it. Cut the excess contact paper off.
Cut strips of the different colored tissue paper that are 1 inch wide. Then cut the strips into 1 inch squares.
Place the squares of tissue paper onto the contact paper so that they overlap. We did our rainbow in 1 inch lines of color, but our daughter was much more interested in mixing the colors. Either way turns out great!
Hang on the window and enjoy!
