Fun St. Patrick’s Day Crafts Make a Rainbow

You will need:

• Red, yellow and blue poster paints
• White heavy paper – cardstock works great
• water


Mix the paint with a small amount water until it is fairly runny. Paint a thick line of red paint in the shape of a rainbow. This is the bottom of the rainbow. Next to the red line paint a yellow line. Make the yellow line a little wider then the red one. Make sure the yellow line overlaps the red paint a little bit. Notice how the overlapping section changes color. Now paint a blue making it overlap on the yellow line. As you overlap the lines the colors blend together making a small line of orange and green. You can add other colors if you like.
