They made the cutest little cupcakes topped with fruit in rainbow colors and the kids all loved them.
This was one of my favorite bulletin boards when I was teaching 1st grade. (Excuse the terrible photo – it’s a picture of a picture because I’m too lazy to scan tonight.) Remember the tissue hearts we made for our Valentine mantel? I did the same thing with my 1st graders for the rainbow. The whole thing was made out of little tissues. I set a center up in the back of my classroom and my little 6 year olds worked on it on and off for about a month. I added a little quilt batting for the clouds and wa-la! A beautiful rainbow for our “Rainbow of Wishes” display for the month of March. I’m planning on making one with the girls when I can muster up some time to cut all of the tissue into little squares.
Here are a few other fun rainbow ideas I’m planning to do with my girls. (Ideas from Pinterest of course!) First a few fun rainbow snacks —
I thought this was so much more fun than a regular veggie tray.
And a couple of fun and easy rainbow art projects —
My girls would love these! They are perfect little projects for them to work on during our “down time” each afternoon while Kole snoozes.
And just to prove our love of rainbows, here are 4 beautifully illustrated rainbows that are displayed in my house at this very moment…

That vegetable display looks decorative but not real functional to me. I think you just want to go to the container store for varying sizes of clear containers. am I right or am I right? go to bed, my friend.
Very CUTE!! I may need to check out this pinterest thing–I see a rainbow snack in my kids futures!! You could throw a whole party with a cute rainbow theme–I attempted my first rainbow cake this weekend!! I’m filing that away for future use:)
a friend of mine just recently hosted a rainbow party. Her ideas were from Pinterest as well. It was so cute: tie-dying shirts and all.
Your fruit cupcakes look divine.
Glad we live on opposite coasts…I, too, am the Mom arriving super early to grab the best seats in the house! Great ideas…thanks for sharing.
I made the fruit kabobs too! they come out so cute and my kids ate a ton of fruit!
You may not want to know this but….you can buy the tissue pre-cut from Discount School Supply. I love them for my classroom supplies!
I love all these pictures of Rainbows out of fruit! We just did an art project and made Rainbows…it was so much fun and they are still hanging up. If you want to check it out…it is up on my blog from last week!
