Rainbow Hats

Who doesn’t love St. Patrick’s Day?  The green, the rainbows… the GOLD.  🙂  This year in conjunction with our Noah and the Ark unit we are learning about rainbows and tying in St. Patrick’s Day.Rainbow hat cover

First begin by cutting colored construction paper into rainbow colored strips.  The longer the strips the higher the hat will be, so this is just an example of size:rainbow hat 2

red – 12 inches,  orange -11.5 inches,  yellow- 11 inches,  green- 10.5 inches,  blue- 10 inches and purple 9.5 inches.  (I actually did a little bit smaller than this for mine, but use any length in increments of a half an inch.

Have the students put them in rainbow order.rainbow hat 1

Staple each side together to get a rainbow.

Attach the rainbow to a paper hat, then glue on “clouds” aka cotton balls.  Super cute!
