St. Patrick's Day Rainbow and Pot of Gold Toilet Paper Roll Craft

It's March and that means St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner.  Here's a rainbow and pot of gold craft that we loved making.  

Pot of Gold Supply List: 1 toilet paper roll, paper plate, tissue paper, markers, glue, scissors, glitter glue

Begin by cutting your paper plate into an arch.  I drew a line for each color of the rainbow and then let Cole fill in the appropriate color.

Color in your rainbow.

Cut your toilet paper roll in half and paint it black.  Allow to dry.  Trim the end of your rainbow so that it will fit down inside the tube.  Add some wadded up tissue paper and paint a little glitter glue on top to give it that gold sparkle.

Book Suggestion: My daughter loves the book What Makes a Rainbow?  Right now it's one that she insists on bringing in the car with her whenever we go somewhere.  This is a great board book for kids just learning their colors or for talking about what colors make up a rainbow.
