This rainbow craft is perfect for toddlers and it is so easy to create! It’s a fun activity to do during St. Patrick’s Day or anytime of the year!
I love using our round potato masher for crafts. We have done a ton of fun and super easy crafts for toddlers using a potato masher over the years and this is hands down my favorite.

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.
