Pop-Up Paper Plate Rainbows

It's been raining a lot! And while we need the rain, I do miss sunny days and blue skies.  Last week was filled with grey skies, so we cheered ourselves up with these pop-up paper plate rainbows.  Rainbow crafts are some of our favorites and this easy one was a lifesaver!

Let's Paint Paper Plate Rainbows with Kids!

1.  Fold a paper plate in half and cut out a curve around half of the plate.

3.  Paint. 

(I painted with a 3-year-old friend.  I just told her we were going to paint rainbows and she just got to work doing her own thing.  So her rainbow extends past the fold.  If you want your kids to paint rainbows in half the circle, use a pencil to mark out where they should paint.  I personally didn't care and loved seeing her creativity.  Her artwork turned out lovely.)
