This past weekend, Trent and I did this fun little craft while Aubrey took a nap. I wanted to do something that Trent could be more hands-on because some craft projects in the past required more effort from me than him, so it was nice to let him do most of a craft that he can call his own. So if you still need a quick craft idea for St. Patrick’s Day, try this Froot Loop St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow!
I started by dumping a bunch of Froot Loops onto a plate and we sorted them by color into the matching bowls.
Bonus points for educational reinforcement, minus bonus points for not being able to find the yellow bowl and having to mix green and yellow together, ultimately driving my slight OCD overboard.
After we got a decent amount of each color, Trent put some glue down on the bottom corner areas of a piece of white cardstock and I pulled apart some cotton balls to put on the glue for clouds.
In the other picture, you can see I had every color Sharpie, as I was thinking I would draw out each color line of the rainbow ahead of time, but I actually only needed to do the red to get started and all the other colors were easy to do with just glue.
I would put some glue down and Trent would put the Froot Loops on top of the glue.
He did every single one on his own. After I repeated ROYGBIV to myself a hundred times to know what color was next, we had a full Froot Loop Rainbow!
He was super proud of his masterpiece!
And because I can never let a year go by without sharing this, here is my favorite St. Patrick’s Day photo ever!
