Rainbow Sun Clouds Paper Plate Craft – Fun Crafts with Mom

My kids had so much fun making these Rainbow Sun Clouds Paper Plate Craft. Any craft with paper plates rate pretty high on their list but this one seemed to include all their favorite craft products like cotton balls and glitter all wrapped up in one.

We started by first covering the plate with a thin layer of glue.

Then I had the boys cover the plates with a thin layer of yellow tissue paper squares. In the past, I have tried cutting up squares and they came out all different shapes. I have loved having these tissue squares in my craft room and we use them often.

Next, take your glue and make a design with it. Make sure to only cover the top half.

Then cover with gold glitter. Shake off excess glitter.

Cut long strips from construction paper in the colors of the rainbow.

Take one strip of each color and staple them to the bottom half of the plate. If you have littles ou might want to do this for them.

    These are so cute, and not too hard, nor too expensive. Pretty much things you are likely to have around. I wouldn’t mind these being stuck to the refrigerator!
