Simple Stained Glass Rainbow Craft
To make your “frame,” simply cut the middle out of a piece of construction paper and stick onto a large piece of contact paper. I usually cut my contact paper a bit larger so that I can use the excess to stick it to the window.
After your frame is in place let your little ones create their stained glass rainbow art by placing squares of tissue paper onto the contact paper in a rainbow pattern.
My preschoolers were very focused and worked diligently to get their rainbows in the right color order. We didn’t have any purple tissue paper so ours stops at blue but the girls didn’t seem to mind. The youngest toddler in my group was unconcerned with the color sequence and just made a rainbow collage. That’s what’s great about this rainbow craft, toddlers and preschoolers can create how every they want and it turns out beautifully.

This spring rainbow craft is also a fun way to work on fine motor skills. It takes work to get those little tissue paper squares separated and placed (sometimes even re-positioned a few times) on the contact paper. You can turn it into a cutting activity too by letting your kids cut strips of tissue paper into squares while you get the contact paper set up.
When they were done adding tissue paper we simply stuck them to our windows and TA-DA! Beautiful rainbows to brighten our playroom!
