Rainbow Pot of Gold

What You Need:

  • Colored construction paper
  • Tape or stapler
  • Hot glue gun
  • Loose change or fake coins
  • Gold glitter glue (optional)


What You Do:

  1. Have your child cut strips of construction paper out of all the colors of the rainbow. When they have an assortment of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet strips, they can take one and bend it into a ring.
  2. Close the end of the loop with tape or a staple.
  3. Next, insert another strip inside the first loop and tape or staple the end closed. This will create the first link of the rainbow chain.
  4. Want to follow a rainbow pattern? Use the handy name Roy G. Biv to remember the first letter of each color. Continue making this rainbow chain as long as you wish for a wall decoration.
  5. Have your child sketch two pots of gold on black construction paper, and cut them out.
  6. Now they can glue on some coins, and add some glitter to the pot of gold on top for extra sparkle.
  7. End each side of your chain with a black loop and glue the pots on each end.
  8. Hang this lucky rainbow chain as a St. Patrick's Day decoration in your home.
