Froot Loop Rainbow Craft

{Rainbow by Mia, Age 3}

Here is a simple, but cute rainbow craft we made last year.

  • Froot Loops cereal
  • paper plate
  • scissors
  • glue
  1. Cut a paper plate in half.
  2. Cut a half circle out of the bottom of one half of the paper plate to form an arc. (In order to get the size correct, you might want to lay out one of each color Froot Loop along the left side of the paper plate half and them trim accordingly.)
  3. Glue a row of red Froot Loops along the top edge. Follow with a row orange Froot Loops. Repeat with yellow, green, blue, and purple.
  4. Once glue is completely dry, you can hang up your rainbow.
Other Ideas:
  • Instead of gluing cereal onto a paper plate, use construction paper. Then add cotton balls or mini marshmallows to make clouds.
  • Make a mobile by hanging paper or aluminum foil raindrops from the rainbow using fishing line or embroidery floss.
  • Skip the glue and just arrange the cereal rainbow (and mini marshmallows clouds, if desired) onto a plate. Let your kids enjoy a yummy snack for St. Patrick's Day or any other day.
