Collage Rainbow

Making a collage rainbow is a fun activity for toddlers and parents alike!

Not only will your child get to use their imagination and creativity, but you’ll also have a colorful piece of art to hang on your wall.

Making a rainbow with your toddler is a fun and easy way to spend an afternoon. This activity is perfect for a rainy day, or any time you need a little creative stimulation and improve their motor skills.

In this article, we’ll show you how to make simple rainbow collages using just some construction paper and glue. Let’s get started!

To get started, you’ll need some supplies. You’ll need paper of different colors, scissors, glue, and magazines or other pictures to use as inspiration. You can either let your child choose the images they want to use or give them some specific instructions.

Once you have your materials ready, it’s time to start creating!

What you’ll need:

Collage materials:

– construction paper in a range of colors

– old magazines

– glue or tape

– pencil or pen

– scissors (toddler-safe or pre-rip the paper)

– fabric scraps

– tissue paper

Step-by-step guide

How to make it:

Step One: Separate the paper into different colors and cut into small pieces. You can either cut them into squares, rectangles, or any other shape you like.

Step Two: Decide on the order of the colors your toddlers wants the rainbow. If yours are anything like mine, they’ll have their own opinions! Make a rainbow shape to help guide them using a pencil or pen. Glue or tape the pieces of construction paper onto a piece of cardboard or poster board in that order. If you’re using tape, be sure to have a selection of pre-made tape pieces so your toddler can start sticking them down and help them put enough on each side so that it won’t come loose.

Step Three: Add another color and keep sticking until your rainbow is complete!

Once it’s finished, you’ll have a vibrant rainbow collage to hang up on a wall or in a window to enjoy! You might even want to make one for yourself!
