Now that Valentine’s Day is behind us, I’m in full blown St. Patrick’s Day mode and I’m enjoying all of these fun creations my kids and I can make to celebrate the holiday. Did you see my DIY St. Patrick’s Day decor and burlap LUCK banner?My kids get really excited about holidays and I can’t help but join them! Since my boys are in preschool now, they are bringing home craft projects everyday. I love seeing them get so excited about doing crafts, so I decided to encourage that craft excitement with this Fingerpaint Rainbow Kids Activity we did at home.

Fingerpaint Rainbow Materials and Tips

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • construction paper (any color for your project but you’ll need black for your pot of gold)
  • paints (I used red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple) I don’t think indigo is a must. 😉
  • gold glitter
  • cotton balls

While it may seem really self explanatory, I thought I would be able to show this craft idea to my kids and have them take off with it, creating beautiful masterpieces. I was wrong. 

For Langston, who’s 4 1/2, I actually did this with him and helped him make his dots. He had a hard time knowing exactly where to put his dots and how to make the overall arc shape. I think he really enjoyed me making this with him, anyway.

My three year old, Riverson, on the other hand, is a go-getter and loves to do things without my help. 


He was really proud! So, I am too. 😉

I’ve learned through this project that neither one of them is quite ready to have full reign with the paints. Maybe it’s a boy thing, but I’m really hoping it’s just an age thing. Next time I’ll have to do crafts with them one at a time, instead of all together.

Both of the boys’ paintings are hanging on the refrigerator and I love how they are equally proud of their work. 

I’m brainstorming more St. Patrick’s Day ideas now that we’ve had fun with this fingerpaint rainbow. In case you are, too, feel free to follow my St. Patrick’s Day Pinterest board. You might find something you like there.

    Super cute! These would be fun with those “dot” paints too. Bella can go to town painting on her own, but anything that involves glitter gives me anxiety ha!

  2. This is a cute activity! I think my daughter would love it!

  7. Thank you. We did this craft and love it. An idea if you don’t have gold glitter is sugar and add a few drops of yellow food coloring. That’s what we did since I couldn’t find the gold glitter. Worked great!
