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.)

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.
