Kid Activity: Rainbow collage

Spring is right around the corner and the magic of leprechauns and rainbows start to come to my children's mind these days.   We also just had a little rain a week or so ago.  So the idea of a rainbow isn't too far fetched.  

Here's a fun March project! 

Rainbow Collage:

What you need:
A pile of magazines
Some paper

Next time I wouldn't cut the rainbow apart.  Rather just draw one on paper.  It was a pain to assemble. 

I know that blogs can give off the illusion that lives are perfect in different families.  Or that some mamas have it all together....crafting, cleaning, cooking, raising polite children, happy marriages, exercising....

Just keeping it real...one of my three children was not thrilled with this activity and threw a major tantrum during this lovely Saturday morning moment.  But I didn't let it stop us from having fun.  It is always fun to glance through magazines, cutting out things....any thing.  Most kids love cutting out of magazines!  This time I just gave them direction...look for things that are colored like a rainbow!

That is a wonderful idea! Thank you. One of my 5 year old's favorite activities is cutting and glueing.
