Supplies for Tissue Paper Rainbow Craft


  1. First, download and print the rainbow template on cardstock then cut. Use a pencil to trace the rainbow on recycled cardboard. Cut it out then set it aside. If you have a Cricut, find a rainbow template then cut the image.
  2. Next, have your child use safety scissors to cut the tissue paper into small pieces. If they are not ready for scissors, let them tear pieces of tissue paper for this craft.
  3. Finally, crumple the tissue paper into small balls then glue onto the cardboard rainbow until it’s completely covered. See images below.
