Supplies for Paper Plate Rainbow Craft


  1. First, fold your paper plate in half then use scissors to cut it.
  2. Next, add a few drops of each paint color to the paint palette.
  3. Create your painting tool by pinching a small pom pom in a clothespin.
  4. Dip the clothespin and pom pom in the red paint then stamp around the plate. Continue this step until you use all the colors. You can sprinkle a little glitter on your rainbow or leave it plain.
  5. Finally, glue white pom poms on each end of the plate to create clouds for your rainbow.
