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.
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:
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.
Staple each side together to get a rainbow.
Attach the rainbow to a paper hat, then glue on “clouds” aka cotton balls. Super cute!
It’s not too late to throw these together for St. Patrick’s Day on Monday. Happy crafting!
