Rainbow Suncatcher

A colorful craft that will get you outside and keep the kids busy! Follow these simple steps to make your very own Rainbow Suncatcher.


  • Colorful cellophane paper
  • A big flat piece of cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Hot glue gun


First draw your rainbow. Make each arc blocky and leave some space between each – about ½ an inch to an inch.

Then grab your exacto knife and carefully cut the arcs out.


Cut your cellophane paper to fit along each of the arcs. Use a rainbow of colors as this is in fact a rainbow suncatcher!

Next, use your hot glue gun to glue the colorful cellophane paper to the cardboard. A good job for littles is to help you line up the colors in the order you’d like them to appear.


Go play! Take your rainbow suncatcher out into the light and see how cool it looks casting colorful rainbows as many places as you can.

Things to Consider:

    • What is a rainbow?
    • What does this rainbow look like on different textures like grass or cement?
    • How does the rainbow change in different lights?
    • Can you take fun photos of your shadow with this rainbow suncatcher?
    • Can you make up new games with your rainbow suncatcher? One suggestion is to try playing a variation of hide and go seek where one person casts the rainbow somewhere in a location and the others have to find it.
