Easy Directions to Make a Potato Masher Rainbow
Gather your supplies. Using the scissors cut a strip of paper for each colour of the rainbow. For preschoolers, you can draw a line down each sheet of paper and have them cut out the rainbow colours.
Glue each colour if the rainbow from red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and pink to the bottom of the page (as shown below).
Dip the potato masher into the white paint (make sure the entire surface is covered in paint so that it stamps a full circle) and stamp it eight or more times on the blue construction paper on top of the rainbow to make the cloud the rainbow will emerge from.
This was a fun and easy craft to make with my preschooler and a fun way to practice scissor skills as well as colours.
