Welcome Spring! {CRAFT}

Ever since we did a heart-shaped sun catcher craft as part of our MoMs group Valentine's Day party, I've been anxious to use more contact paper. I love the smooth feel of it...and it's not even very messy!

To welcome spring, we made a rainbow.

The girls started by applying different colors of tissue paper to our rainbow-shaped paper.



I then put their completed rainbows on a larger sheet of contact paper, and cut around it.



We talked about needing a mix of rain and sun to make a rainbow, so we made a fluffy cloud [cotton balls on white card stock] for one side of the rainbow...



...and a multi-rayed sunshine for the other side.



Here are our final products!



And the girls were so excited to see I'd hung them on the window during nap time!



[Just don't tell them that this rainbow craft was originally planned for St. Patty's Day, but Mommy ran out of time. Rainbows and spring...that's believable, right???]

Linking up with Charlene at Adventures-in-Mommy-Land for Hey, Mom! Look What I Did! Pop on over for some great crafting inspiration!

Super cute! I've been promising the kids we could make suncatchers for the window (to replace the snowflakes I just got around to taking down). These would be perfect. Thank you for sharing!
