Torn Paper Rainbows - Tuesday Art Linky!

Today I'm linking up with my friend Mel from the Pond to share a simple art activity my kidlets worked on today!  We've been learning all about the letter r this week and these torn paper rainbows were the perfect way to add some colour to our classroom walls.

All you need is a rainbow template (I downloaded one after a google search but it would be easy to draw), construction paper, glue and cotton wool!  We had cut the paper up into long strips for the kidlets, but if your class is a little older they might like to try tearing larger paper into strips themselves.  Simply tear the strips into pieces and glue onto the template, being sure to overlap them a little.  Pull the cotton wool apart before gluing onto the cloud shapes.

This was such a great activity and one that my little ones really enjoyed.  It was challenging for those who are still working on their fine motor control, but in the end all of the rainbows were finished perfectly... and they look gorgeous on display!

Go ahead and link up with Mel to share your art idea! :)

Have a wonderful week, friends!



  1. Your rainbows look fantastic and it's such a super cute activity! I've done this one before (and a variation using coloured pasta) and it's so much fun.
